China and Pakistan, following a meeting between their leaders, have issued a joint statement stating that international efforts to engage with the Taliban should pave the way for the formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, and Chinese President Xi Jinping met in Beijing yesterday, Sunday, June 8.

After their meeting, both countries issued a joint statement emphasizing the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan and the need for what is referred to as “the necessity of establishing a comprehensive political system in Afghanistan.”

The leaders of China and Pakistan met at the second regional contact group meeting on Afghanistan, which was held in Tehran. Representatives from China, Russia, Pakistan, and Iran were in attendance.

Members of this meeting referred to Afghanistan as a “regional issue” accompanied by the response of the Taliban administration.

Zaher Jalali, from the Afghan Foreign Ministry, had previously announced the Taliban officials’ non-participation in the Tehran meeting in response to statements by Hassan Kazemi-Qomi, who said Afghanistan is no longer “an issue” and “decides independently.”

Hassan Kazemi-Qomi, Iran’s Ambassador and Special Representative for Afghanistan Affairs, said during the second regional contact group meeting that the terrorist threats emanating from Afghan soil are the main concern of regional countries.
