He further added that China expects Afghanistan to build an inclusive political structure, maintain an ongoing and sound policy towards Muslims, vigorously fight terror and extreme ideas of all kinds, and engage in cordial relations with all its neighbors. He reaffirmed that China will support Afghanistan to achieve all the above-mentioned goals by always being available to communicate and coordinate with all the parties involved in the process. He said that China is also ready to act as a mediator, conduct diplomatic mediation, and provide necessary convenience for peace and stability in Afghanistan.

Talking about the US’s withdrawal Wang said that the US wasn’t successful in bringing peace but now as the forces are withdrawing and that the Afghan people have learned a lot from this experience they have the opportunity to take the fate of their country and nation into their own hands.

He also highlighted the role Taliban will play in the coming times. ‘Taliban being the country’s largest military force need to show a committed attitude towards the prosperity of Afghanistan, make a firm split with all terrorist elements, and return to the mainstream of Afghan politics with the agenda of bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan’, said, Wang
