China announces Afghan trade, investment plans

Kabul: On Tuesday, China’s ambassador announced trade and investment plans for Afghanistan after an earthquake drew attention to the humanitarian impacts of Western sanctions. At a rare press conference alongside the Taliban administration’s acting minister for disaster management, Ambassador Wang Yu announced $8 million in aid for relief from the June 22 earthquake that killed more than 1,000 people. “Besides emergency humanitarian aid, after the political changes last year and after the earthquake, we also have long-term economic reconstruction plans,” he said.
