New Delhi: The friendly attitude of Taliban towards China is making many countries of the world including America apprehensive. Meanwhile, when the US President was asked a question about the concern about China providing funds to the Taliban, he said that 'China has a real problem with the Taliban.
So they're going to try to make some deal with the Taliban, I'm sure. As Pakistan does, so does Russia, as Iran does. They are all trying to find out what the Taliban does now.
Joe Biden on China:
Let us tell you that the Taliban's friendship with China has created fear among the Uighur Muslims living in Afghanistan. There is a fear among these Muslims that the Taliban government may forcibly send them back to China to please China. While many of these Muslims say that they fled China's Xinjiang province to Afghanistan to escape government repression.
Experts say that there are reasons for the fear of Uighur Muslims. Their greatest fear arose when a group of Taliban leaders visited China last July. There both the Taliban and China praised each other. The Taliban described China as their "good friend" and said it would never allow its land to be used against China.
Last week, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in an interview to Chinese TV channel CGTN - 'China is an important and strong country in our neighbourhood. We have had positive and good relations with China. Now we want to further strengthen these relations and increase the level of mutual trust.
These things are considered by Uighur Muslims as a sign of their danger. George Washington University professor Sean Roberts said- 'There are many reasons why the Taliban will try to deepen ties with China by accepting its terms. It is also compelled to do so especially at a time when its financial aid has been stopped by the international community.
