China, our ‘great neighbour’, will help Afghanistan forge peace: Taliban

The Taliban hopes to work with China to forge peace in Afghanistan and will make good on its pledge to keep the country from being a staging ground for terrorists, its spokesman Suhail Shaheen has told This Week in Asia.

“We are ready to exchange views with China on how to forge ahead in terms of boosting our mutual relations, establishing peace in the region, and its assistance in the reconstruction of Afghanistan,” said Suhail.

Suhail’s comments on Monday came on the eve of the August 31 deadline for US forces to leave Afghanistan after 20 years and just days after an Islamic State suicide bombing killed at least 92 people, including 13 US military personnel.
