Beijing to maintain communication with new Afghan government

TEHRAN, Sep. 08 (MNA) – China said on Wednesday it is ready to maintain communication with the leaders of the new Taliban government in Afghanistan.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the comment at a daily briefing in Beijing when asked if China would recognize the new government, whose leaders were named on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

China respects the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of Afghanistan, Wang said.

After the Taliban took power in August, China had called for an "open and inclusive" government to be established.

"We hope the new Afghanistan authorities will listen broadly to people of all races and factions, so as to meet the aspirations of its own peoples and the expectations of the international community," said Wang.
