China’s CCP calls the US “bandits” for seizing $7 billion worth of Afghan assets

CCP Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin slammed the Biden admin for seizing $7 billion in Afghan assets after it froze them in August last year.
“Without the consent of the Afghan people, the US willfully disposes of assets that belong to the Afghan people, even keeping them as its own. This is no different from the conduct of bandits,” Wenbin said.
Biden froze those funds when the Taliban regained control of the country last year, which China says should be returned to the Afghan people to ease the ongoing humanitarian crisis there.

  1. Am I mistaken or is that money the US was donating to the prior Government of Afghanistan?

    My information is that the US government disbursed almost $73 billion in military aid to Afghanistan between 2001 and 2020. The aid stopped when the people who were getting the money left.
