Beijing’s Anti-US Remark Backfires
A recent bombing in the Afghan capital, Kabul, killed 85 people and injured 147 others. The Taliban are suspected of being behind the attack. Instead of condemning the terrorists, the Chinese Foreign Ministry blamed the United States, claiming that the US withdrawal from Afghanistan was causing successive violent attacks in Afghanistan.
On the same day as the school bombing, the U.S. Department of State condemned the attack, calling “for an immediate end to violence and the senseless targeting of innocent civilians.”
President Joe Biden announced on April 14 that the US military would begin withdrawing from Afghanistan on May 1 and complete its withdrawal before September 11, to focus on countering the Chinese threat in the Indo-Pacific region.
May 1 is the U.S. troop withdrawal deadline that was negotiated under President Donald Trump.
