China benefits from Pakistan-backed support in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan

The Taliban arrived in Kabul today to assist in the formation of a government after resolving internal disputes between the Mullah Yakub-led rebels and ISI Director General Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid Sirajuddin Haqqani. When asked by US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan this week that the Taliban was the enemy, Biden's aide said it's hard to label it, to some extent we (US) do not see what they are now. They have complete control over Afghanistan. The democratic world is facing a strange situation in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, where the ruling Taliban is not a United Nations or US-designated terrorist organization, but its 120 top leaders are on the UNSC Committee on 1267 Global Terrorists. Including the President of the Emirate. Mulla Abdul Ghani Bardar. Al Qaeda, the Haqqani Network, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Toiba (Let) and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, the UN 1267 Committee and all global terrorist organizations under the US State Department have pledged (Bayat) the Taliban and its supreme leader Mulla Hibatullah Akunjada. Based on this scale, the democratic world is playing with economics when it engages the Taliban without violating its policy of not negotiating with terrorists and terrorist organizations. In fact, countries like China and the United Kingdom have thrown out a book of ethics and sought the support of patron Pakistan to suppress the Taliban. Pakistan's super spy Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid, DG, ISI, arrived in Kabul today amid differences over the Taliban's announcement of a new Afghan government. While the visit was quiet, Kabul observers say the Taliban leadership will help General Hamid to clear their differences and announce a government soon. Rawalpindi facilitated a meeting between Mullah Bardar and Foreign Minister **** yi in China last July. In fact, the real beneficiary of the military revolutions this year is China, a real practitioner of real politics because it is in power in the Taliban in Myanmar and Afghanistan, while the democratic world hopes that Sunni Islamist groups will legalize them. Gives the government window to integrate to make them. This is a real threat to India as it has pro-China rule on its eastern and western borders. Apart from legal concerns from Taliban affiliates trying to create internal problems in Kashmir and the hinterland, India is already facing large-scale engagement with China in Afghanistan and Central Asia through its friends in Russia and Iran. Instead of questioning the treatment of Sunni extremists in Xinjiang, the Taliban threw Western calculations into the dustbin by openly demanding economic ties with China. Al Qaeda's statement on August 31 spoke of the liberation of so-called Islamic lands around the world, including Palestine, the Maghreb, Syria and Kashmir, but did not say a single word about the Xinjiang Uyghurs. The theory that brutal repression in Xinjiang will turn Taliban 2.0 against China is still emerging. Prioritizing the CPEC, China is expanding its belt road initiative to Afghanistan in response to infrastructure development and is clearly pushing for its lithium and copper resources. This will allow China to procure Afghan minerals not only from the Gwadar port in Balochistan but also through the Karakoram Highway. It abandoned US military equipment, including black hawk helicopters, IED-proof all-terrain vehicles, tactical drones, area weapons and body armor for reverse engineering.
