Taliban have pledged to ban from their country any group that uses its soil to carry out hostile actions against a third country, including the United States, China or Russia.
In an interview with the Global Times, Taliban spokesperson, Suhail Shaheen, confirmed that members of the Islamic Movement in East Turkestan have already been ordered to leave Afghanistan.
This movement, also known as the Turkestan Islamic Party, has claimed responsibility for several hundred terrorist attacks in China over the past 30 years. It intends to establish an Islamic Emirate in Xinjiang. The exact size of its membership is unknown, but it controls the enclave of al-Zanbaki in Syria, (Idlib governorate), which has become a Chinese city. This group is now protected by the CIA and armed by Turkey.
China provided $ 31 million in aid to Afghanistan on 8 September 2021.
