China plays a key role in Afghanistan’s development: Afghan, Pakistani experts

China flagAfghan and Pakistani foreign affairs experts believe that China can play a key role in the reconstruction and development of Afghanistan, given their political non-interference and their abundance financial resources to sponsor investments.

They say China has built good relations over the years with Afghanistan’s foremost neighbors, Iran and Pakistan.

“Unlike Russia or the United States, China carries no historical ‘extra-baggage’ and unlike Pakistan, Iran, Turkey or the Central Asian Republics, China has stayed away from all previous conflicts or civil wars in Afghanistan, therefore it is not tainted in any way as far as the Afghan people are concerned, and, unlike the increasingly bankrupt West, China has the financial resources to sponsor much-needed investment in key sectors of Afghanistan’s development,” Xinhuanet quotes Chairman of Pakistan’s Senate Defense Committee.

This comes as President Ashraf Ghani plans to visit China, as his first trip abroad since taking office, to attend the Heart of Asia Summit.

Expert attach high hopes to his attendance of the Summit where representatives from 14 countries will be coming together to rouse regional cooperation for security and development in Afghanistan and its near and extended neighbors.
