Doha. China’s Special Ambassador to Afghanistan Yu Xiangyong has made it clear that there are no plans to recognize the Taliban government of Afghanistan in the near future.
The special envoy told an agency that China is yet to receive an assurance from the Taliban government in Afghanistan that it will not allow its soil to be used to carry out terrorist attacks against other countries. The ambassador made it clear that in the absence of this assurance, China has no intention of recognizing the Taliban government.
Xi Jinping attended a two-day meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres with Special Envoys for Afghanistan in Qatar. This is the first meeting since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan in August 2021. “China believes that the recognition issue cannot be resolved soon, but it does not mean that We should not actively engage with the Interim Government of Afghanistan.
We believe this is a matter of humanitarian aid. This country was in the hands of outsiders for the last 20 years. We believe that for the first time there is an opportunity to take the destiny of our country into our own hands. We should show our respect for this country, for their sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.
The Chinese diplomat noted that the Afghan government should sever ties with terrorist groups and reaffirm its assurances of not using its territory for attacks on other countries. Mr. Xiangyong also believes that the Taliban government Recognition should be decided by each country individually, not collectively.
He said that China’s priority at the present stage is not recognition, but the provision of assistance to the people in Afghanistan. After the talks, Mr. Guterres told reporters that recognition of the Taliban was not on the agenda and that it was the right time to meet their representatives. Not there.
