Wang Yu, China’s ambassador in Kabul said that more than 20 terrorist groups are present in Afghanistan.

Yu, without naming these groups, criticised the United States and claimed that they are indulging in dual behavior in the fight against terrorists.

China is concerned about Uyghur and Turkistan Islamic Movement militias’ activities at the Afghanistan borders.

With Taliban’s need for recognition and development of economic relations, the group has promised Chinese officials during meetings in the past months, that they will drive out Uyghurs from the borders and will fight against the Turkistan Islamic Movement.

It has been reported earlier that Chinese officials in a meeting with Sirajuddin Haqqani, leader of the Haqqani network and Taliban minister of interior, have discussed these matters.

China considers Turkistan Islamic Movement a threat to their national security. According to the Chinese media, China’s ambassador in Kabul in a press conference, confirmed that they will cooperate in various sectors and will expand their relations with the current Taliban government in Afghanistan.
