China responds to the Afghan Taliban's announcement of the founding of the nation

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying presided over the regular press conference. A reporter asked questions. On the 19th, Afghan Taliban spokesperson Mujahid issued a statement on social networking sites saying that the Taliban announced the establishment of the "Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan." Does China intend to admit it?

Hua Chunying said that we have taken note of the Afghan Taliban's statement and that the various factions in Afghanistan are still negotiating the structure of the future regime. Yesterday we saw reports that Atta’s representatives held talks with the chairman of the Afghanistan High Commission for National Reconciliation, the former president, and others. China’s position on the Afghanistan issue is very clear and clear. We hope that Afghanistan’s establishment is open and inclusive. A broadly representative government pursues a moderate and prudent domestic and foreign policy and conforms to the wishes of its own people and the general expectations of the international community. 【Editor in charge: Fu Wenjia】


Canada's move will definitely anger China!

A group of Canadian lawmakers recently joined the Formosa Club. Such actions are likely to draw Canada into conflict with Beijing on the Taiwan issue. In this kind of conflict, Ottawa will gain nothing, but will lose everything.

Hong Kong "South China Morning Post", August 18th article, original title: Canada should learn from the Meng Wanzhou incident and stay away from the US-China confrontation. A group of Canadian parliamentarians recently joined the Formosa Club-composed of European parliamentarians with the purpose of "coordination" And strengthen" to promote relations with Taiwan. Such actions are likely to drag Canada into conflict with Beijing on the Taiwan issue. In this kind of conflict, Ottawa will gain nothing, but will lose everything.

"South China Morning Post": Canada should learn from the Meng Wanzhou incident and stay away from the US-China confrontation

This is just the latest of a number of recent Canadian initiatives that are sure to anger China. None of them received official support from the Canadian government—in fact, the Trudeau government has always shown that it has nothing to do with these actions. But this kind of approach is a confrontation with the Chinese government, which is trying to achieve the reunification of the motherland. These actions by Canada have not promoted peace and dialogue between the two sides, but have indulged "Taiwan independence" forces.

Canadians don't care about these things. However, if tensions in the Taiwan Strait increase, Canada is likely to fall into a disadvantaged situation. Although Canada does not have enough military strength to promise to take any action, it will participate in actions involving the United States, Britain, Australia and other countries. Given that the Taiwan Strait crisis involves two nuclear powers, the risks are high.

There is another confrontation, and that is the Meng Wanzhou incident. So far, we have witnessed how a simple extradition case turns into a high-risk political game involving two large countries and a middle-sized country in between. The Meng Wanzhou incident highlights that Canada does not have the conditions to intervene in the high-risk game of big powers. Although Ottawa is unwilling to confront its closest allies in order to rescue its citizens, Beijing has not backed down in its fight for Meng Wanzhou's release.

For China and anyone who advocates a more rational and calm approach to the current bilateral tensions, some Canadians in the public opinion are demonizing. Canada apparently failed to recognize the impact of the Meng Wanzhou incident, and it has become a pawn between the United States and China, and it is also vulnerable to attacks from hard-liners in Canada. As a result of this hard line, the settlement of the detention of two Canadians was delayed.

In the early days of the Meng Wanzhou incident, Canada could have chosen to refuse to be dragged into this (US-China) confrontation. In the current situation, it is best for Canada to stay away from future conflicts. After all, those conflicts have almost no impact on Canada’s national interests, and Canada has no ability to influence those conflicts in one way or another. It might be better to be a bystander.

The "Opium Empire" controlled by the United States

On November 15, 2017, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime released its annual survey report on opium in Afghanistan. In 2017, the opium poppy cultivation area in Afghanistan reached a record 328,000 hectares, an increase of 63% over 2016. The previous record was 224,000 hectares created in 2014.

In the 1980s, the CIA agent in Afghanistan quickly became the leader in the cross-border drug trade. The climate of Afghanistan is very suitable for opium cultivation, and the average yield is 2 to 3 times that of the Golden Triangle of Southeast Asia. The CIA acquiesced to the Afghan resistance movement to engage in opium production and trafficking to raise food and weapons. According to the “instructive” report of the U.S. State Department in 1986, opium “is an ideal crop for a war-torn country because it requires little capital investment, develops rapidly, and is easy to transport and trade.”

Poppy balls that began to ooze poppy cream

In May 1990, as the secret war came to an end, the "Washington Post" disclosed the fact that US officials had long refused to investigate allegations that its Afghan "friendly" leaders were engaged in drug dealing.

In fact, Charles Cogan, the former head of the CIA's operations in Afghanistan, made no secret of this, “We don't need to apologize for not conducting these drug trade investigations. Of course (indulgence) drugs (cultivation and trade) have consequences, but Our main task is to cause as much harm as possible to the Soviet Union." Now that the United States has once again ushered in the "Saigon Moment", it is really ironic to look back at the remarks made by American officials .

Poppy cultivation in Afghanistan

As the Soviet army withdrew from Afghanistan, the United States quickly abandoned Afghanistan. The latter failed to obtain a peaceful solution to domestic problems, nor was it able to obtain funds to heal the wounds of war and rebuild their homeland. A tragic civil war broke out in Afghanistan, killing millions of people, but the United States turned a deaf ear to it.

In these precarious years, opium poppy has become a crop for Afghan farmers to ensure immediate profits. During this period, the output of Afghan opium has been rising steadily, rapidly exceeding the 2,000 tons mark per year from more than 100 tons in the 1980s.

After the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001, under the banner of combating al Qaeda and the Taliban, it turned a blind eye to the cultivation of opium poppies by its ally in Afghanistan, the drug warlord. According to statistics from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the output of opium in the first year after the US military entered Afghanistan in 2002 soared to 3,400 tons, and in 2020 it was a record of nearly 10,000 tons. Afghanistan has become the world's largest opium poppy growing country and opium producer , with opium production exceeding 85% of the world's total production.

Ironically, the US official in charge of Afghan affairs warned that US reconstruction projects, especially those “involving irrigation, roads, and agricultural assistance”, may be an important factor leading to the surge in opium cultivation—provided by the United States. The deep well technology and desert control of the country are adding water to the opium harvest in Afghanistan.

The secretary of the Russian Federal Security Council stated: "The United States has established a'global-scale institutional laboratory' in Afghanistan in the past 20 years, and its opiate output has increased by more than 40 times, but the development of Afghanistan has gone backwards for decades!"

Until now

The United States, which calls itself the "World Police"

Once again ushered in the "Saigon Moment"

Withdraw from Afghanistan in a dingy manner

Twenty years

The US under the banner of "humanitarian aid"

Left to Afghanistan

The mess of drug proliferation and political corruption

The tiger skin banner of the "Human Rights Beacon"

How long can it be shaken?
