Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi arrived in Kabul, Afghanistan on Thursday for talks with the Taliban government.
The two countries are now forging closer ties after Joe Biden surrendered to the Taliban regime and left them with more than 80 80 billion in US weapons and supplies.
The Chinese are leaving where the United States left off.
Deutsche Welle reports:
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi began a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Thursday in a bid to deepen political and economic ties between the two countries.
Wang met with Taliban leaders in Kabul, his first visit to the country since the radical group took control in August. The meeting was attended by Deputy Prime Minister Abdul Gani Baradar and Foreign Minister Amir Khan Muttaki, two top Taliban officials.
What have Chinese and Taliban leaders talked about?
During the visit, China’s top diplomat expressed fears that Afghanistan could become a platform for attacks by Muslim Uighur separatists.
A statement from Baradar’s office claimed that Wang had been reassured of all concerns that China believed “could arise from Afghan soil.” Although the statement did not directly mention Uyghurs.
China’s concerns are not without reason, as the Taliban harbored members of the al-Qaeda terrorist group when it last came to power in the early 2000s.
