China Foreign Minister Slams Blinken For "Double Standards" And Fighting Terrorism "In A Selective Way"

Originally published on ZeroHedge.

In the aftermath of Biden’s catastrophic and deadly withdrawal from Afghanistan, which not only handed the country with its vast natural resources to the Taliban on a silver platter along with tens of billions in ultra-modern US weapons, led to the deaths of at least 13 US service members, and also created a historic power vacuum just waiting for China and Russia to swoop in and realign the balance of power in Asia, China has taken particular delight in the unprecedented humiliation the US is suffering under its nearly octogenarian president, while also rubbing salt in the wound.

Case in point, on Sunday during a phone call between the Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, and US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, the US was urged to take “concrete actions” to help Afghanistan combat terrorism and avoid adopting double standards, according to the Global Times.

The talk took places three days after the bombing attacks which occurred outside the Kabul airport in the Afghan capital on Thursday leaving dozens dead, but also nearly two weeks after Wang and Blinken exchanged views over Afghanistan on August 16.

Wang said the domestic situation in Afghanistan has fundamentally changed and it is necessary for all parties to engage with and actively guide the Taliban, especially the US.

“Facts have proved once again that the Afghan war has not achieved its goal of eradicating terrorist forces in Afghanistan and a precipitate withdrawal of US and NATO forces could provide opportunities for various terrorist groups in Afghanistan to return,” said Wang.

Wang added that the US should “take concrete actions” to help combat terrorism and violence in the country under the premise of respecting Afghanistan’s sovereignty and independence, instead of “adopting double standards” or fighting terrorism “in a selective way.”

He also urged the US to work with the international community to help maintain the normal operation of the new Afghan government, social security and stability, and start the peaceful reconstruction of the country as soon as possible.

Blinken said the UN Security Council should send a unified voice to express the expectation of the international community that the Taliban should ensure the safe evacuation of foreign citizens, guarantee that the Afghan people will receive humanitarian aid and avoid becoming a haven for terrorism. Wang said the US is well aware of the causes of the current turmoil in Afghanistan and any action taken by the Security Council should be conducive to easing tensions rather than exacerbating them.

As for the piece de resistance, Wang urged the US to stop blindly smearing and attacking China and expressed firm opposition to the COVID-19 origins tracing report – which as we noted last week, was farcical beyond comprehension, with US “intelligence” agencies saying they are unable to make a definitive conclusion absent Chinese cooperation. Because clearly China will cooperate in implicating itself as the source of Covid.

China’s a double speak nation too……Their trade with the US crossed the $580 billion mark last year. Behind the scenes these guys are very comfy with the US and enjoying the trade returning to normal.

Not quite correct on that one. It was the previous US regime that went overboard and started this whole trade war. How did the orange man in office said it … “trade wars are easy to win”? It was not about the trade at all. It was about slowing down China at all costs. That is also why they demonize China over that whole flu situation, which simply has noting to do with them beside the fact that they did everything by the book calling WHO after they discovered the new kind of flu virus. But it was intentional to put the whole blame on them and so it is also very obvious who really created this whole “thing” and put everything in motion.
So after the whole trade war backfired on the US they slowly try to make things come to normal again, as they realized that the whole thing is hurting them the most. China just went on and made new trade agreements with other countries to substitute their imports from US. As for the US they simply cannot go like this. They are so broke, they need cheap high quality stuff from China. That is why every joe is still buying his stuff from China anyway. They just order everything online and have it shipped home.

China and the US have no drama….both are the greatest trade partners probably in all of human history……lol…don’t believe the MSM propaganda.

You just telling what is obvious to the naked eye from a economic point of view. That is somehow pointless as there are many levels of cooperation between countries. Which MSM propaganda are you referring to btw?
China and the US are already in a real war (real to them, not to the most people out there) which is intensifying with every baseless accusation from each side and also with all the open and covered operations going on between both of them. The US is simply trying not to loose it’s hegemony and China is simply not accepting the fact that some country is calling the shots in the world.
I honestly don’t think that I’m the one falling for some sort of MSM propaganda here.

US double standards are normal practice.

Naturally, war gets tough at times but IMHO the US should have stayed in Afghanistan. It was doing well with its lithium mining and drug operations. Now the CIA will have to get its money through appropriations. How’s that going to pan out?

It’s true there were a few casualties along the way. But as to replacements, the US has plenty of homeless littering the streets. Why couldn’t they have been press-ganged into service and given them twelve weeks boot camp so solving two social problems.

Or we could have used the female surplus presently lounging around watching soaps. Best to catch them before they’ve pumped out replacements or, if they’ve gone to term, ship them overseas with their progeny strapped to their backs. Then when they stop a bullet you’ve got a twofer.

Never forget –War is the health of the state. Let’s keep America great. Anyone up for China?
