Earth’s biggest human rights abuser hopes to capitalize on the Taliban seizing power in Afghanistan.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is pleased with Islamic militant fighters taking control of Kabul, because the communist regime could make a lot of money from a change of leadership.
The CCP welcomed the withdrawal of U.S. troops and opportunity to strengthen diplomatic ties with the Middle Eastern country. Major powers have coveted Afghanistan for generations due to its geostrategic importance.
The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs hopes the two dictatorships can develop “friendly and cooperative relations.”
Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying claims the Taliban previously wanted to foster “good relations” with the CCP, and looks forward to Beijing’s increased involvement in rebuilding and developing the country according to Fox News.
Chinese propaganda is already promoting a closer relationship with the militant group. State-run media took the opportunity to attack the United States as an unreliable international partner that might also abandon its Taiwanese alliance at any time.
The ministry also confirmed on Twitter it has already held talks with Taliban representatives about forming an “open, inclusive Islamic government.” The ministry even suggested the militant group should not only defend Afghan citizens but even “foreign missions” like the Chinese embassy and consulates.
BL understands Beijing has much to gain from an alliance with the Taliban, since the Asian nation shares a 76 kilometer (47 mile) border with Afghanistan. The bordering Xinjiang province is widely reported to be the scene of the CCP’s cultural genocide against Uighur native people. The regime also persecutes peaceful Christians, Tibetan buddhists, and Falun Gong adherents.
France 24 reported a high-level Taliban delegation met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Tianjin during July. They claimed Afghanistan would not be used as a “base for militants,” which prompted the CCP to offer economic support and investment in rebuilding the country.
Hua said the Chinese embassy in Kabul continues to operate despite evacuating Chinese citizens several months ago due to the deteriorating situation.
President Joe Biden promised a complete withdrawal of U.S. troops by Sept. 11. However, Washington and the world was shocked to witness the Afghan government’s rapid collapse, following the sweeping advance of Taliban fighters.
Former President Donald Trump criticized his successor’s handling of the withdrawal, and demanded the Democrat’s immediate resignation.
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” he said on Gab.
Trump claimed the incumbent repeatedly makes foreign policy mistakes on a number of issues.
“Everyone knew he could not handle the pressure,” the previous president said in a statement. “The Taliban no longer has fear or respect for America, or America’s power.”
