China Ready to be ‘Guarantor’ for Afghan Peace Deal

KABUL – China has offered to serve as guarantor for a proposed peace agreement in Afghanistan, an official statement said late on Wednesday.
Hamdullah Mohib, Afghanistan’s national security adviser (NSA), received Deng Xijun, China’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, in the capital Kabul.
The envoy briefed Mohib on Beijing’s recent efforts for peace talks, according to a statement from the NSA’s office.
“He (Xijun) reaffirmed China’s support for the Afghan-led and -owned process and offered China’s proposal as guarantor to any agreement,” the statement added.
There have been multiple signs of cautious optimism from the Washington and NATO about a potential peace deal in Afghanistan this year. In the last two days, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg as well as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have said a comprehensive peace deal with the Taliban is within the grasps.
This comes as the Washington and the Taliban are set to hold the seventh round of negotiations for peace later this month in Doha, Qatar.
The Taliban have so far not shared their views in this connection.
