Taliban seek rapprochement with China – Beijing wants to strengthen relations

Beijing wants the embassy in Kabul to continue operating and “our relations are strengthened compared to the past,” said a Taliban spokesman on Twitter on Friday. The Chinese government confirmed the statements. Meanwhile, the EU imposed conditions on the Taliban for further aid payments and diplomatic contacts. The announcement of a government for Afghanistan, which is expected on Friday, is now expected on Saturday at the earliest.
