It is pertinent to note that China will provide almost $31 million worth of food, winter weather supplies, vaccines, and medicine to Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, China's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.
Hua Chunyin, the spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, said the decision was announced during the first meeting of the foreign ministers of Afghanistan's neighboring countries and would be "for emergency use to the Afghan people.”
