China tells its nationals in Afghanistan to abide by Islamic customs, dress code
The embassy of China in Kabul has urged its nationals in Afghanistan to strictly abide by Islamic customs, including dress code and dining in public.
In an advisory issued to all Chinese nationals, the embassy also suggested that they avoid Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport and other chaotic sites, Global Times reported.
During Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s meeting with a Taliban delegation in the northern Chinese port city of Tianjin last month, he said he hoped Afghanistan could adopt a moderate Islamist policy.
On Thursday, Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said that China is welcome to contribute to the rebuilding of Afghanistan as it has played a constructive role in promoting peace and reconciliation in the country.
“China is a big country with a huge economy and capacity – I think they can play a very big role in the rebuilding, rehabilitation, reconstruction of Afghanistan,” Suhail Shaheen told China-based CGTN television in an interview.
Unlike Russia and the United States, an increasingly powerful China may be able to leverage the fact that it has not fought in Afghanistan in dealing with the Taliban.
