China (Xi Jinping) has sought a joint opinion with Iran on the formation of a Taliban government in Afghanistan, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, adding that Beijing and Tehran should strengthen communication on the transfer of power in Kabul.
Wang, who is also the state councilor, told Iranian Foreign Minister Hossain Amir-Abdollahian that the Afghan Taliban could announce the formation of a new government in the near future, adding that China hopes the new government in Kabul will be open and inclusive. Cut ties with all terrorist organizations and establish good relations with all countries, especially neighboring countries.
“As common neighbors of Afghanistan, China and Iran need to strengthen communication and coordination, and play a constructive role in achieving a smooth transition and peaceful reconstruction of Afghanistan,” he said in a phone conversation.
Wang also criticized the United States, saying “America’s argument that China’s withdrawal from Afghanistan could divert its attention to China and Russia is not only an excuse for its failure but also a push for authoritarian politics in this world.”
Amir-Abdollahian said the root cause of the chaos in Afghanistan was US irresponsibility. “Iran is also being urged to establish a comprehensive and comprehensive government that will reflect the interests of all ethnic groups in Afghanistan,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Iran shares the view that Afghanistan should form a comprehensive government that reflects the interests of all races and called on the international community to provide humanitarian assistance to prevent the volatile situation in Afghanistan from provoking the influx of refugees.
Iran is ready to strengthen coordination with China, he added, adding that Afghanistan needs to get out of the crisis as soon as possible.
