The acting Interior Minister of the interim government in Afghanistan, Sirajuddin Haqqani, met with Mr Wang Yu, the Chinese ambassador in Kabul, Afghanistan, on Monday.
According to a statement issued by the Ministry, the two sides underlined the issues of mutual interest, including the tripartite conference in Islamabad.
According to Haqqani, justice is crucial in international engagement, and he praised China for taking a realistic stance.
He also pointed out that “there will not be an atmosphere of trust unless moral principles become the norm, and that having malicious intent for others is bad politics.”
“We believe in good relations. The policy of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is that of interaction and understanding, we have good intentions, and we expect the same from others,” Haqqani stated.
In his part, Yu said at the meeting that China supports Afghanistan and believes a free and independent environment is necessary for the country to flourish. The statement indicated that the country is presently on this path.
“We are not supporting the policies of sanctions, pressure and interference in other countries,” Mr Yu said.
Since the takeover of the country by the de facto regime, China extended its support and initiated several investments, particularly in the mining and energy sectors.
