|Wang Yi Expounds on China's View on the Afghan Issue|
On July 29, 2022 local time, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) foreign ministers' meeting in Tashkent. Wang Yi expounded on China's view on the Afghan issue.
Wang Yi said, Afghanistan has currently come to a critical point of transition from chaos to order, and the overall situation is stable, but it also faces many challenges. The SCO should adhere to engagement and dialogue to encourage Afghanistan's efforts to build a broad-based and inclusive government and exercise moderate and prudent governance; help those in distress to assist Afghanistan in improving people's livelihood and recovering the economy; pool efforts to combat terrorism and urging Afghanistan to clear all terrorist forces; conduct multilateral coordination to gather more consensus of countries in the region.
Wang Yi said, not long ago, Afghanistan suffered from an earthquake, and China provided humanitarian assistance for the Afghan people via multiple channels. China will work with the SCO member states to help the Afghan people tide over the current difficulties, and support Afghanistan in actively exploring a development path that is suited to its national conditions and in line with the trend of the times.
