At the regular press conference held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs this afternoon, a reporter asked: It has been more than one month since the opening of the first internal Afghan negotiations.
According to reports, the two sides of the Afghan peace talks have not yet reached an agreement on key issues such as the basis and basis of the negotiations. The formal negotiations have not yet started
and the conflicts in the Afghan civil war have not decreased but increased. In the process, the US has been running around and tried its best to mediate.
what opinions do the Chinese have on this issue? How do you view the role of the United States and the international community on the Afghan issue?
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said that internal Afghan negotiations have opened a window of opportunity for Afghanistan to achieve peace and stability. China has always supported
the “Afghan-led and Afghan-owned” inclusive peace process and advocated that the two sides of the Afghan peace talks should resolve the Afghan issue at the negotiating table rather than on the battlefield.
talks will focus on national interests and national justice, seize opportunities, seek common ground while reserving differences, find the greatest common divisor, strengthen confidence and sincerity, maintain patience and restraint, and negotiate results as soon as possible.
Zhao Lijian said that China believes that the international community, including the
United States, should play a constructive role in advancing the negotiations among the
Afghan people and support relevant parties to do their best to promote peace and promote talks.
neither party can use its own interests or even wantonly intervene in the peace and reconciliation process in
Afghanistan. Maintaining and promoting security and stability in Afghanistan is an important prerequisite for promoting peace, reconciliation and reconstruction in Afghanistan. The Afghanistan issue is complex and difficult to solve.
Internal and external factors must be in the same direction and work in concert, otherwise it will be counterproductive. The United States is the biggest external factor in the Afghan issue.
It should withdraw its troops in an orderly and responsible manner to prevent further escalation of violence in
Afghanistan and create a favorable external environment for negotiations among the Afghan people, not the other way around.
