New Delhi: Yue Xiaoyong, China's special ambassador to Afghanistan, paid a low-key visit to India on Thursday. During this time, he met with Joint Secretary JP Singh of the Ministry of External Affairs and discussed a variety of Afghan-related issues.

According to diplomatic sources, Yue Xiaoyong's visit is a strong indication that China has also accepted that it cannot move forward without India in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan. .Yue Xiaoyong, China's special ambassador to Afghanistan, was making his first visit to India.

Prior to this, he visited Pakistan and Turkey to discuss Afghan issues. This was the second major visit by a Chinese official since the violent clash between Indo-Chinese PLA troops in Galvan in June 2020. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited India earlier this year in March.

Yue stated that the conversation was fruitful

The government, however, made no formal statement regarding UE's visit to New Delhi and meeting with Joint Secretary JP Singh. JP Singh is responsible for Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran issues in the Ministry of External Affairs. JP Singh had also recently met with Taliban senior leaders and commanders.

In this context, UE's visit to India symbolises the fact that the issues in Afghanistan issue cannot be resolved without India's cooperation. The UE stated in a tweet following the meeting that the purpose of the meeting was to discuss efforts to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan. 'It was a good trip to India for the first time,' he wrote. Various Afghanistan-related issues were discussed with Joint Secretary JP Singh.

Both parties agree to strengthen mutual dialogue and collaborate with positive energy to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan. Yue's visit to New Delhi coincides with heightened tensions between China and Taiwan. Significantly, China has begun military exercises in the Taiwan Strait following the visit of US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan.

China had offered to negotiate

According to sources familiar with Yues visit to New Delhi, China offered this meeting. In this context, it is clear at the diplomatic level that the Dragon recognises India's critical role in Afghanistan. According to sources, this meeting should not be interpreted as a sign of normalisation of India-China relations.

The differences between New Delhi and Beijing, particularly regarding troop mobilisation in Ladakh, remain unresolved. This was the first meeting of senior Indian and Chinese diplomats since the Taliban reclaimed Afghanistan after two decades in August of last year. Significantly, despite Taliban rule, China is one of the few countries that did not close its embassy in Kabul. Despite the fact that China has yet to recognise the Taliban regime, it has advocated for "friendly and cooperative relations."
