China to join Pakistan-hosted meeting on Afghanistan, skips India’s parallel conference | Source: Global Times

A Chinese representative will attend the Pakistan-hosted meeting on Afghanistan, along with representatives from the US and Russia, and Chinese analysts believe that the four countries which could play a comprehensive role in addressing the plight of Afghanistan are likely to discuss the urgent needs and next step for Afghan Taliban in forming an inclusive government and cracking down on terrorism. China’s decision to join the meeting came a day after Beijing said it was unable to attend a India-hosted meeting on Afghanistan due of “scheduling reasons”. Chinese analysts said India is using the meeting to show its influence in regional affairs and strike a blow to Pakistan.
