TALIBAN officials have declared China as their closest ally in the international community.
Militants say Beijing is “ready to invest in and reconstruct” Afghanistan and describe the nation as their “principal partner”.
Zabihulla Mujahid, spokesman for the group, has stated the Chinese would help to revive Afghan copper mining.
He also praised the Chinese for their One Belt One Road investment project which has forged forward despite criticism from western countries.
China is one of the few countries which did not evacuate staff from their Kabul embassy in the wake of the Taliban’s takeover.
It has also been reported that a Taliban delegation visited China in July for talks with the foreign minister Wang Yi, in Tianjin.
Mr Mujahid told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: “China is our principal partner and for us represents a fundamental and extraordinary opportunity because it’s ready to invest in and reconstruct our country.
“We hold in high regard the One Belt One Road project that will serve to revive the ancient Silk Road.
“Beyond that, we have rich copper mines which thanks to the Chinese can be brought back into production and modernised.
“China represents our passport towards the markets of the whole world.”
His comments come after Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab declared that Britain won’t be “recognizing the Taliban at any time in the foreseeable future.”
CHINA BUILDS CAMPS AND MASS IMPRISONS MUSLIM MINORITIES
HONG KONG — The students booked their tickets home at the end of the semester, hoping for a relaxing break after exams and a summer of happy reunions with family in China’s far west.
Instead, they would soon be told that their parents were gone, relatives had vanished and neighbors were missing — all of them locked up in an expanding network of detention camps built to hold Muslim ethnic minorities.
Congressman Markwayne Mullin – (R) OK, Eye Witness to Americans being stranded in Afghanistan.
FOX NEWS – The congressman recently returned from a semi-secretive trip to Asia to help bring home Americans stranded in Afghanistan following Biden’s withdrawal process. The lawmaker told Baier that the State Department wasn’t being truthful with the American people, and that he spent nearly a dozen hours on the phone with the department while trying in vain to land in Afghanistan.
CANDACE OWENS DENIED COVID TEST BASED ON HER POLITICS.
China’s decision to limit the amount of time kids can play online videogames is its latest move to rein in the technology industry and cultivate youth morality, no matter how intrusively.
Yet upon hearing about the move, plenty of exasperated parents in the U.S. surely thought, even briefly, could we do that here?
China’s rule, which went into effect on Wednesday, bans people under the age of 18 from playing online videogames during the school week, and allows for only one hour a day of gaming on Fridays, weekends and holidays.
A BOOK YOU SHOULD READ
THE VANISHING AMERICAN ADULT by BEN SASSE

Raised by well-meaning but overprotective parents and coddled by well-meaning but misbegotten government programs, America’s youth are ill-equipped to survive in our highly-competitive global economy.
Many of the coming-of-age rituals that have defined the American experience since the Founding: learning the value of working with your hands, leaving home to start a family, becoming economically self-reliant―are being delayed or skipped altogether. The statistics are daunting: 30% of college students drop out after the first year, and only 4 in 10 graduate. One in three 18-to-34 year-olds live with their parents.
