Agreement on Afghanistan-China railway construction to be signed soon

China and Afghanistan would soon sign an agreement on the construction of a railway connecting the two countries.

The announcement was made by Chinese Ambassador Yao Jin in a meeting with President Ashraf Ghani at the Presidential Palace on Friday.

Jin reaffirmed his country’s support to Afghanistan and said the relationship between the two nations would be strengthened further.

“After the official visit of President Ghani to China, the political, economic and security relationship between the two countries has further improved.” Jing added.

President Ghani praised China for their contribution to Afghanistan’s reconstruction and development and for their role in peace talks with the Taliban.

Four-nation talks aimed at ending Afghanistan’s 15-year war concluded Saturday with a call for direct negotiations between the government and the Taliban by the end of February, but recent battlefield advances by the insurgents could make it hard to coax them to the table.

A one-page statement released at the end of the meeting, which was attended by representatives of Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and the United States, said a roadmap for peace had been agreed upon. However it offered no details on what incentives the government might offer the Taliban.
