Beyond The Lines

The Taliban announced an acting government on 10th September 2021, that is one day before the 11 September, a day which allowed the U.S. to invade Afghanistan in 2001.

After the announcement of some key members of the acting government in Afghanistan, on 8th September a meeting between Foregin Ministers of its neighbouring countries was chaired by China.

In the meeting Wang Yi the Foregin Minister of China announced that China will provide 3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Afghanistan, as well as emergency humanitarian aid worth 200 million yuan ($31 million) including food, medicines and other materials for winter.

The Foreign Ministers meeting was held among China, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. The Taliban had also invited China, Russia, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey on 10th September to be a part of the “acting cabinet” announcement.
