US News has learned that if terrorist organizations succeed in controlling the democratically elected government in Kabul, China is prepared to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate ruler of Afghanistan. According to US publications citing intelligence sources familiar with China’s assessment, the relationship with terrorist organizations was formally established. The Taliban began their offensive in May and began to take over key areas.
According to the “Long War Magazine”, in addition to the estimated 73 areas previously controlled by the Taliban, more than 160 areas have fallen. He added that terrorist organizations now fully control 8 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces. The Taliban claimed to occupy more than 10 of the 34 administrative centers in Afghanistan’s provinces. The sudden withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan has brought opportunities and challenges to Beijing. One is because China can partially fill the power vacuum left by the West, and the other is because the Taliban is an organization with historical ties to Islamic terrorist organizations.
Allowing the Taliban to control large areas of Afghanistan is now threatening the Kabul government. Despite the growing relationship, Beijing has expressed concerns about the organization’s relationship with the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which is a national security issue. An interpretation by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that China had told the visiting Taliban delegation last month that East Turkistan poses a direct threat to its national security and territorial integrity, and that combating East Turkistan is the common responsibility of the international community.
This message was conveyed in Tianjin on Wednesday during a meeting with Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, chairman of the Afghan Taliban Political Committee. “We hope that the Afghan Taliban will break with all terrorist organizations including the East Iraqi Movement, resolutely and effectively attack them, remove obstacles, play an active role, and create favorable conditions for regional security, stability, development and cooperation.” Chinese reading.
