Sorry to let the United States down! At the critical moment, Wang Yi gave the Taliban a gift, shaking the world

According to a Fox News report on the 7th, the White House stated that the United States "is not eager to recognize" the new Afghan government, and said that US recognition will "depend on" the actions of the Taliban.

When White House Press Secretary Jane Psaki was talking to reporters on Air Force One on the 5th, he was asked when the Biden administration was going to recognize the new Afghan government. Psaki replied: "We are not in a hurry to admit that it will depend on what actions the Taliban take. The world will pay attention to whether they will allow American citizens to leave, whether they will allow those who want to leave, and how they treat people across the country. Women and girls." She added: "I can't give you a timetable."

President Biden previously stated on the 4th that he recognized the new Afghan government "there is still a long way to go."

To the disappointment of the United States, China has announced emergency assistance to Afghanistan. According to the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on September 8, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the first meeting of the foreign ministers of Afghanistan’s neighbors by video in Beijing.

Wang Yi said that Afghanistan today stands at a crossroads in history. The United States and its allies hurriedly withdrew, and the power politics, military intervention and so-called "democratic transformation" promoted by the United States and the West ended in failure. However, Afghanistan still faces severe challenges such as humanity, people's livelihood, and the new crown epidemic. Some international forces may also use political, economic and financial means to create new problems for Afghanistan.

Wang Yi said that Afghanistan’s neighboring countries should play a unique role, not only to resolve their legitimate concerns, but also to provide a good external environment for the reconstruction of Afghanistan’s stability. At this stage, coordination and cooperation in six areas can be focused on:

One is to help Afghanistan strengthen the prevention and control of the epidemic. Afghanistan is one of the countries with the lowest COVID-19 vaccination rate in the world, and the domestic epidemic is at risk of accelerated spread. All parties can work together to continue to provide anti-epidemic supplies and technical assistance to Afghanistan. China has decided to donate 3 million doses of vaccine to the Afghan people, and is also willing to provide Afghanistan with more anti-epidemic and emergency supplies under the China-South Asia Emergency Reserve.

The second is to keep the ports open. Afghanistan's economic and trade exchanges are highly dependent on land ports.

The third is to strengthen the management and control of difficult immigration.

The fourth is to provide humanitarian assistance as soon as possible. Neighboring countries should help each other and extend a helping hand when the other party is in difficulty. According to the needs of the Afghan people, China has decided to urgently provide 200 million yuan worth of food, winter supplies, vaccines and medicines. After security and other conditions are met, China is willing to help Afghanistan build projects that will improve people's livelihood, and, within its capacity, support Afghanistan's peaceful reconstruction and economic development.

The fifth is to deepen anti-terrorism security cooperation.

The sixth is to carry out anti-drug cooperation.


I woke up and broke up with "Taiwan independence", and the world became hot. Within 24 hours, China's two major departments talked about each other.

According to a report by China Taiwan.com on September 7th, the so-called "friend" Honduras of the Taiwan authorities in Central America will hold a presidential election in November this year. Castro, the candidate of the "Liberal Reconstruction Party", the main opposition party on the left of Honduras, recently stated that if the party wins the Honduras presidential election, it will establish diplomatic relations with mainland China.

At present, including Honduras, the Taiwan authorities currently have only 15 "states with diplomatic relations" left. Since Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP came to power on the island in 2016, seven countries have "broken diplomatic relations" with the DPP authorities .

In response to Castro's remarks, Taiwan's foreign affairs department issued a statement warning Honduras not to accept China's "showy and false" promises. This is the mainland's consistent trick to undermine the relationship between Taiwan and its "allies." The statement stated that the Taiwan The authorities are closely monitoring the situation in Honduras and vowed to continue to strengthen bilateral relations.

In response, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin stated on the 7th that there is only one China in the world and Taiwan is an inalienable part of Chinese territory. The one-China principle is the universally recognized norm of international relations and the universal consensus of the international community. Adhering to the one-China principle is the will of the people and the general trend. China welcomes all words and deeds that agree with and support the one-China principle. We also warn the Taiwan authorities that "Taiwan independence" is a dead end. The trick of "financial aid diplomacy" has been spurned. Any attempt to go against the trend of history and to rely on foreign self-respect is doomed to end in failure.

Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said in response to inquiries on the 7th that relevant departments of my country have stated my solemn position. The one-China principle is the universally recognized norm of international relations and the universal consensus of the international community. We hope that relevant countries will handle the Taiwan issue in accordance with the one-China principle.

Zhu Fenglian said that based on the political nature of "Taiwan independence", the DPP authorities have turned black and white, deceived themselves, and attempted to make trouble in the international arena.


Worth 200 million yuan! Why does China support the reconstruction of Afghanistan? Wang Yi expresses his position to release unusual signals

State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi attended the first meeting of the foreign ministers of Afghanistan's neighbors by video in Beijing. Wang Yi said, "China has decided to provide Afghanistan with emergency aid worth 200 million yuan." Why does China support the construction of Afghanistan? Wang Yi's speech gave the answer.

Wang Yi said that the United States and its allies hurriedly withdrew, and the power politics, military intervention and so-called "democratic transformation" promoted by the United States and the West ended in failure. However, Afghanistan still faces severe challenges such as humanity , people's livelihood, and the new crown epidemic. Some international forces may also use political, economic and financial means to create new problems for Afghanistan.

Wang Yi said that as a neighboring country, no country is more reluctant to see Afghanistan fall into war and re-emergence, and no country expects more peace and development in Afghanistan than we do. Neighboring countries should help each other and extend a helping hand when the other party is in difficulty. According to the needs of the Afghan people, China has decided to urgently provide 200 million yuan worth of food, winter supplies, vaccines and medicines. After security and other conditions are met, China is willing to help Afghanistan build projects that will improve people's livelihood, and, within its capacity, support Afghanistan's peaceful reconstruction and economic development.

On September 7, local time, the Afghan Taliban announced the first batch of candidates to form the interim government. The Taliban have recently repeatedly expressed their trust in China, hoping that China will participate in the reconstruction of Afghanistan, but at the same time the Taliban has also extended an olive branch to the United States and the West. The Taliban's willingness to rebuild the domestic economy and reshape its self-image has been quite clear. However, Western public opinion generally criticized this provisional government for "not showing tolerance. "

Western public opinion has had complicated discussions about China filling the "vacuum" after the US troop withdrawal. However, they did not face a problem squarely. The Taliban frequently showed their favor to China. This is China's current advantage. It is the result of China's steady foreign policy and strong national strength for many years. China has no geopolitical ambitions in Afghanistan. China's national interests require us to actively influence Afghanistan's reconstruction route, promote peace in Afghanistan, resolutely stay away from terrorism, and pursue a moderate, inclusive, and stable social policy.But this kind of influence of China will not be a forceful intervention, but will use interests as a driving force, which is completely different from the thinking of the United States and other Western countries.
