Washington: US President Joe Biden on Tuesday stated that China has a “real problem” with the Taliban so it is trying to make “some arrangement” with them.
The Taliban have captured the whole country and have established their government .
Biden said in his statement
“China has a real problem with the Taliban. So they’re going to try to work out some arrangement with the Taliban, I’m sure. As does Pakistan, as does Russia, as does Iran. They’re all trying to figure out what do they do now.”
Just a few weeks before the fall of the previous reign in Afghanistan, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had met the Afghan Taliban Political Commission Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar aiming to develop ‘friendly relations’ with the group.
China, before the fall of Kabul, had already prepared to recognise the Taliban as the actual government in Afghanistan.
