China support Afghan forcesThe Chinese President Xi Jinping has reaffirmed Beijing’s military support to the Afghan security forces during a meeting with the Chief Executive Officer Abdullah Abdullah.

The Office of the Chief Executive in a statement said the Chinese President reaffirmed military aid as well as supporting Afghanistan in development and rehabilitation projects.

The statement further added that the Chinese leader also announced Beijing’ support towards the Afghan-led peace process.

The remarks by Jinping followed after CEO Abdullah urged China to use its influence in persuading the regional countries to fight terrorism and help maintain peace and stability in the region, specifically in Afghanistan.

Abdullah urged China to help the Afghan security forces as they continue to face the menace of regional terrorism with insurgents from the eastern and central parts of Asia pouring into Afghanistan.

The commitment by Jinping comes as the country’s Chief of Army earlier pledged over $70 million to help support and equip the Afghan security forces.

During his visit to Afghanistan earlier in March, Chief of China’s People’s Liberation Army Mr. Fang Fenghui, announced the fresh military aid, saying the latest aid will follow besides Beijing’s ongoing cooperation in development and economic sector.

Gen. Fenghui also added that China will call a regional summit to implement the proposal by President Ghani during Shanghai conference for fight against terrorism.

Reiterating China’s commitment to fight terrorism in the region, Gen. Fenghui said Afghanistan is located in a strategic location and acts as an important economic belt, which is continuously threatened by the terror groups.
