- Talking to Chinese Media, Taliban Spokesperson Calls China ‘Great Neighbor’
- Can play an important role in reconstruction and economic cooperation in Afghanistan
- China’s appeal to Taliban – Tackling the terrorist group ETIM in a tough manner
Chinese entrepreneurs and managers of state-owned enterprises recently told the Chinese media that Afghanistan has ample investment opportunities but has not yet paid any attention to them due to the threat of violence and US sanctions. During an interview with Chinese media, the Taliban reiterated their promise to fight terrorism in Afghanistan. China is among the countries that are ready to recognize the Taliban government.
China is our great neighbor
Speaking with the South China Morning Post on Monday, Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said, “We are ready to share ideas with China to promote our mutual relations.” Shaheen said that our “great neighbour” China can play a constructive and positive role in the reconstruction of Afghanistan and the economic development and prosperity of the people of Afghanistan.
Taliban to shun terrorist groups
At a meeting in Tianjin in July, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Taliban leader and co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar that the group should deal firmly with the Xinjiang-based terrorist group East Turkestan Islamic Movement. He said earlier this month that the Taliban “clearly” needed to completely disengage from all terrorist forces and combat international terrorist organizations identified by the UN Security Council.
Afghanistan will not become a refuge of terror
On Monday, Suhail Shaheen said that the Taliban will not allow anyone to use Afghanistan’s land to damage the peace of the neighboring country or other country. The group has also promised the US and Pakistan that it will stop aiding al-Qaeda and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan. The operation to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan ended a day ahead of the deadline on Monday night. The Taliban is calling it ‘Afghanistan’s independence’ and celebrating it.
