China vows to help Taliban ‘rebuild’ Afghanistan in Doha meeting | Source: Strait Times

China pledged to help the Taliban “rebuild the country” while reiterating calls for the US to lift sanctions against the new leaders of Afghanistan as the economy worsens. China is also counting on the Taliban to rein in radical Islamic terrorists that threaten Chinese interests both at home and abroad. A stable Afghanistan could open up opportunities to develop the country’s substantial mineral resources and give a boost to Beijing’s Belt and Road infrastructure initiative.
