Karachi: After the Taliban took over, China turned the primary nation to nominate an envoy to Afghanistan.
The Chinese language ambassador introduced his diplomatic credentials to Performing Prime Minister Muhammad Hasan Akhund at a ceremony held in Kabul, after which China turned the primary nation on the planet to ship an envoy to Afghanistan throughout the Taliban period.
Talking to international media, the spokesman of the Afghan Ministry of International Affairs mentioned that Chinese language Ambassador Zhao Qing has taken over his obligations.
It must be famous that no nation has but formally acknowledged the Taliban authorities since taking management of Afghanistan in August 2021, and China has not signaled that the appointment of an envoy is a step in direction of recognizing the Taliban authorities. There’s progress.
China’s former ambassador to Afghanistan, Wang Wu, who assumed his duties in 2019, stepped down final month.
Though there are ambassadors from completely different nations in Kabul, they had been posted in Afghanistan earlier than the Taliban took energy.
