The moment Chinese soldiers set foot in Afghanistan you can bet the US will start funding and arming a terrorist group in Afghanistan to kill them.
Investing in Afghanistan may be a good thing for both China and Afghanistan, but the onus is on the Afghan government to provide safety within their own borders.
You're saying that as if the US wouldn't fund terrorist groups to kill Chinese workers.
Exactly. If the Afghan Gov cant provide safety for investment then all this talk about BRI, CPEC, Chinese mining etc is all meaningless.
The Afghan Gov should realise that security is everything. Security, security, security
The reality is that the Taliban have limited capabilities, so Afghanistan will be a highly dangerous work environment for the foreseeable future. China's choice is whether to absorb this risk, with the result of dead and/or kidnapped workers and engineers, to give up on Afghanistan as part of the BRI, or to partner with the Taliban to improve the security of Afghanistan.
To me, the choice seems obvious.
