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.
The Taliban have reportedly deployed suicide squads at the border with China and Tajikistan.
Afghan youth are also being recruited for a special suicide battalion in the Afghan army.
