Raffaello Pantucci, a senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute think tank in London, said that both the Taliban and the Afghan government “have done their utmost to make it clear to Beijing that they will support their interests in Afghanistan going forwards.” “The Chinese pot of gold at the end of the rainbow will always be there for whoever is in power in Kabul, and that will mean that there will always be an incentive for whoever is in power in Kabul to want to try to get the Chinese on side,” he said.
