The Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing was aware of the suspicions towards the Taliban but added that nothing in the world is set in stone. The Taliban appear to be more clear-headed and rational than two decades ago, China said on Thursday, adding that Beijing was in talks with the group and called international powers to be more objective in dealing with the fast-evolving situation in Afghanistan. Reacting to the latest developments in Afghanistan, the Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing was aware of the suspicions towards the Taliban but added that nothing in the world is set in stone. Quoting what the Taliban leadership has so far said, Hua said, they have given the assurance that the militant group will work to resolve the problems faced by the people, meet their aspirations, and strive to build an open, inclusive Islamic government. We have also noticed that some political figures of Russia and other countries and many international media have recognised Afghan Taliban’s behaviour after it entered Kabul, believing their good, positive and pragmatic actions.
