Kabul: In a viral video that has been shared by a Chinese government official shows Taliban fighters swinging from what seems like a defunct copter.
The Chinese government official shared a video with the following caption on Twitter, “The graveyard of EMPIRES and their WAR MACHINES. Talibans (sic) have turned their planes into swings and toys….”.
Earlier, the fighters of this hardline Islamist group were seen enjoying rides in the amusement parks, dancing inside the Presidential Palace, cooling themselves with ice-creams at ice-cream parlours, with their videos and images going insanely viral.
The withdrawal of the US troops ending the 20-year-old deployment has opened up a great opportunity in front of China in the region, experts have said explaining why China is warming up to the Taliban.
Before Afghanistan fell to the Taliban, a delegation of the Taliban, led by Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, now the deputy head of the new government, met China’s foreign minister Wang Yi in Tianjin. The Taliban are an important military and political force in Afghanistan, Wang Yi said at that time.
