China seeks Taliban’s support to drive out Uyghur militants from Afghanistan | Source: The Week

Taliban delegates shake hands during talks between the Afghan government and Taliban insurgents in Doha.

China feted Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, praising the insurgent group as an “important military and political force” in Afghanistan and asked it to make a “clean break” with all terrorist groups, especially the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) – the Uyghur Muslim militant group from Xinjiang, amid deepening concerns over the regrouping of the ETIM, blamed by Beijing for all the violent attacks in its volatile Xinjiang province and elsewhere in the country.
