Taliban militants visit Foreign Minister of China

India needs to plan out a strategy keeping in mind that it will have to endure the friendship between the Taliban and China.

Kabul (Afghanistan) – A group of Taliban militants from Afghanistan, led by Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, visited China. The militants group met the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi. Mullah Baradar told China that ‘Afghanistan’s land will not be used against the security of any country’. A few days before this meeting, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and ISI chief Faiz Hameed had gone to China to meet Wang Yi.
