As we should all know by now, Afghanistan has become ravaged in the headlines, and many are unsure what will happen with the Taliban establishing control in the country.
Some analysts say that China may play a role in what will happen next with Afghanistan.
But the question is, how genuine is China’s interest in Afghanistan?
On this coffee date, Hamish Hallett was joined by Jason Szeftel, who has a lot of knowledge on how China operates with his blog and podcast called China Unravelled. They spoke about whether China is interested in Afghanistan or it just being newspaper gossip. Not just that, but they looked into if there are genuine China-Taliban links and if the west should be concerned by China’s supposed interest in the country. Hamish and Jason also covered other areas of international relations and how states act in a conversation that has many moving parts and should spike the interest for those interested in this situation and international relations as a whole.
You can send in your thoughts to Hamish about the episode.
