Kabul : After the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan, the whole world and even Afghans are scared and worried about civil rights, safety of life and property, while there are some countries whose soft stand on Taliban is clearly coming out. Is. These include China and Pakistan. Even before the official occupation of Kabul, a Taliban delegation went to China and sought help for support in Afghanistan.
China then sought help from the Taliban in its campaign against Uighur extremists. Now that the Taliban has seized power in Afghanistan, China’s soft stance has also come to the fore. After all, what are the things that bring China and the Taliban so close? A German media report said in this regard, ‘Whether it is the issue of human rights violations or the suppression of freedom of expression, China and the Taliban seem to be standing in the same place in this matter.’
Criticizing China and the Taliban, the report said, “Despite a long history of development, China’s communist regime still treats its citizens like ‘slaves’, while the Taliban is radical and orthodox in its thinking. The Taliban, which calls itself the flag bearer of Islam, is silent on the repressive attitude of the Chinese communist regime towards Uighur Muslims in China’s Xinjiang province, which has been pointing fingers at China around the world.
China has its own commercial interests in Taliban-occupied Afghanistan, where it has an eye on trillions of mineral wealth, so it has also announced big investments here. According to the DW report, China had already announced a massive investment in Afghanistan in July, with which it shares a border of about 76 km. Chinese companies have already acquired the rights to mine oil here.
All this can be easily understood in the backdrop of Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar’s meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in late July, before the capture of the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the Afghan capital, Kabul, in which China ‘conquered the Taliban in Afghanistan’. Describing China as a “critical military and political force”, the Taliban described China as a “trusted friend” and expressed support for each other.
However, the eyes of the world are on the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan as well as China’s stand.
