China calls for early stabilization in Afghanistan


09:58, September 15, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday called for an early resumption of stability in Afghanistan one day after the U.S. embassy in Kabul was attacked by Taliban militants.

"The Chinese side has noted the incident and gives its attention to the security situation in Afghanistan," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said in response to a question on the attack.

A number of armed insurgents on Tuesday attacked different parts of Afghanistan's capital of Kabul, including the U.S. embassy and NATO headquarters.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the assaults were aimed at thwarting plans to hand over security to Afghan forces but they will not succeed.

"We hope that the parties involved will sincerely take responsibility for helping Afghanistan improve its capabilities when handing over security to Afghan forces," Jiang said.

"As a friendly neighbor of Afghanistan, China hopes that Afghanistan will resume stability, and achieve ethnic reconciliation and peaceful reconstruction on an early date," she added.
