China ready to contribute to peace, stability in Afghanistan

China is preparing for the third foreign ministers meeting among the neighboring countries of Afghanistan, and is willing to contribute to the durable stability and security of Afghanistan, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Monday.

Addressing a press conference Wang said the United States walked away irresponsibly from Afghanistan, leaving the Afghan people in a serious humanitarian crisis and creating enormous security challenges to regional stability, Xinhua reported.

Wang said the immediate priority was to provide humanitarian aid. He also urged the US to immediately lift the freeze on Afghanistan’s assets in the United States.
