China’s state-run Global Times newspaper
celebrated the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban jihadist organization
Sunday as a “complete humiliation” for the United States, shortly before
the Foreign Ministry hinted it would be open to friendly ties with a
new Taliban regime.
Taliban fighters surrounded Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, on
Sunday following a months-long campaign to sweep control of most of the
rest of the nation out of the hands of the former government of the
country. The Taliban launched
its military campaign in April, after President Joe Biden announced he
would break a deal brokered by predecessor Donald Trump last year that
would have seen American troops fully withdraw from the country by May 1
in exchange for Taliban fighters abstaining from attacks on Americans
and breaking ties with al-Qaeda and other jihadist groups.
