MoFA’s Message Regarding Taliban Delegation's Visit to China
KABUL – The Government of the People's Republic of China recently informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan that a Taliban delegation would visit China. According to the information, the purpose of the visit was to convey China's concerns about the security situation in Afghanistan, the presence of foreign fighters and terrorists alongside the Taliban, and the Chinese government's support for peace talks and a political settlement.
During the visit, the Chinese government expressed its deep concerns over the recent Taliban attacks, which have resulted in rising civilian casualties and the displacement of tens of thousands of civilians, calling on the Taliban to embrace a political solution and sever ties with regional and international terrorists.
Given the common security threats and mutual political and economic interests, and in light of recent talks between the Presidents and Foreign Ministers of the two countries, the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan expects the Chinese government to play its valuable role in strengthening regional consensus and exerting international pressure on the Taliban to end violence, establish a ceasefire, ensure peace and end the presence of foreign terrorists in Afghanistan.
