AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: Chinese President Xi Jinping has pledged to provide Afghanistan with security equipment.
“Increasing security cooperation suits both countries’ interests. China will continue to supply Afghanistan with security supplies, technology, equipment and training assistance,” Xi told President Ashraf Ghani during a meeting in Russia.
Xi is in the Russian city of Ufa for a summit of the leaders of the BRICS emerging nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, during which Afghanistan’s security is to be discussed.
China says it does not seek to replace departing Western troops in Afghanistan but has promised to play a huge commercial role in helping rebuild the country.
