Taliban could be integrated into Silk Road
China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi met his counterpart Amir Khan Muttaqi in Kabul on Thursday. The meeting is the highest-level visit by a Chinese official since the Taliban seized power last year. Wang and Muttaqi discussed a possible role for Afghanistan in the Belt and Road Initiative and the launch of work in the mining sector, Reuters reported. China is willing to work to expand the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor to Afghanistan, a Foreign Ministry statement said. The corridor is one of the most important Silk Road projects. So far, Beijing has not formally recognized the Taliban government in Afghanistan.
