Chinese Ambassador in Doha met with Taliban Leaders


11 June 2021: Mullah Baradar Akhund, IEA Deputy for Political Affairs and Head of the Political Office met Li Chen, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China in Doha today. Both sides discussed the current status of intra-Afghan talks, security of Chinese companies in Afghanistan. They have also discussed the current corona pandemic situation in the country as well as China’s medical assistance for the Afghans which was welcomed.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, also called Mullah Baradar Akhund or Mullah Brother, is a co-founder of the Taliban in Afghanistan. He was the deputy of Mullah Mohammed Omar. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen took to Twitter a few hours ago to report about the meeting held.

It is important to note that this is not the first time that China has made contact with the Taliban. Several meetings have been made in the past especially for providing assistance to a war-torn country for health and development assistance.
