According to a statement from the office, the Foreign Minister of China Wang Yi made the proposal to the Deputy Prime Minister of Afghanistan, Mullah Baradar, during their recent talks in Qatar.
Wang recommended that the Taliban promote unity among all Afghan ethnic groups and fractions, adopt a friendly policy with the rest of the region and build a modern state that meets the needs of its population.
He recalled that the country is now facing challenges such as the humanitarian crisis, economic chaos, terrorist threats and difficulties at the governmental level, but at the same time it has the opportunity to achieve reconciliation and become the master of its own destiny.
Wang Yi stressed that China respects the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Afghanistan, supports the right of its people to choose their own path of development and is ready to provide assistance during reconstruction.
He also urged the United States and other Western powers to lift sanctions and engage with the Taliban in a rational and pragmatic way to help the country make progress.
Likewise, he called on the Taliban to honor its promise to break ties with any terrorist organizations, fight the East Turkestan Islamic Movement and solve the problems that hinder the maintenance of regional peace and cooperation.
