The security situation is deteriorating rapidly after the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. Meanwhile, China had sent a flight to bring home 210 of its citizens from Afghanistan. State media reported this on Friday. The Global Times newspaper, published by the ruling Communist Party, said the Xiamen Airlines flight took off from Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, on July 2 and landed in Hubei.
The airline confirmed this report on China’s social media platform Weibo but did not provide any additional information. Global Times and other reports have said that the corona test report of 22 of the people on board the ship has come positive. However, this number has not been included in the National Health Commission’s daily report of new cases.
Taliban calls China ‘friend’
After battling the Taliban for nearly 20 years, US forces may leave Afghanistan by August. Chinese companies have invested in Afghan mining and infrastructure, but those assets are now under threat as the Taliban have captured large amounts of Afghan districts, posing a threat to Kabul. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said his group now controls 85 percent of the country’s territory.
However, the Taliban have welcomed the ‘Dragon’, eyeing Afghanistan’s trillion dollar mineral wealth. The Taliban have described China as their ‘friend’. The Taliban is also keen to talk to Beijing about Chinese investments as soon as possible to rebuild war-torn Afghanistan. Shaheen while supporting China on Uighur Muslims said that we will not give shelter to anti-China Uyghur fighters in our country.
Taliban will guarantee security
Suhail Shaheen said that the Taliban guarantees to protect both Chinese investments and employees if Chinese workers return to work in Afghanistan. Speaking to ‘This Week’, Shaheen said that the Taliban welcomes China to Afghanistan. If they want to invest in the country, we will ensure their safety. The safety of Chinese investments and their employees is very important to us. A Taliban spokesman said the Taliban would no longer give refuge to Chinese Uighur Muslim separatist fighters in their country.
