How did ISIS-K sabotage China’s expansionist policy? Jinping getting fed up in Afghanistan
China trembled with the havoc of ISIS-K!
The expansionist policy of Chinese President Xi Jinping is facing a major setback in Afghanistan. Due to another terrorist organization ISIS Khorasan (ISIS-K) in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, all future investments for China seem to be in jeopardy there. While on one hand there is a nexus between Taliban and China, on the other hand ISIS-K is considering Xi Jinping’s government as a threat to the Muslim country and Muslims. For some time now, the way this dreaded terrorist organization has wreaked havoc on Chinese projects and Chinese citizens there, even the Communist Empire of China has started trembling.
Chinese projects and citizens are becoming targets
In view of the growing threat of ISIS-K, all the future projects of China in Afghanistan seem to be stuck in midstream. All the huge Chinese investments in Afghanistan have come under the target of this organization. Xi Jinping’s government has been given a lot of confidence by the Taliban rulers, but the attacks on Chinese citizens and projects continue. In fact, such attacks had started ever since the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Last December itself, there was an attack on the hotel in Kabul, where Chinese businessmen keep coming and going. ISIS-K had claimed responsibility for that attack as well.
ISIS-K considers China as enemy of Muslims
The extent to which ISIS-Khorasan is enraged over China was seen in an editorial in one of its magazines last year. The title of that editorial was ‘China’s Daydream of imperialism’. According to a report by NIKKEI Asia, this is a warning against his alleged attempt to usurp the resources of a Muslim country and the alleged inhumane persecution of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang province.
Taliban first made agreement with China
According to the report, China’s Xinjiang Central Asia Petroleum and Gas (CEPAIC) has signed an oil mining deal with the Taliban for 25 years. The deal has been done for the northwestern Amu Darya oil field in Afghanistan. In another deal, China is negotiating with the Taliban to mine copper from Afghanistan’s famous Mes Ayanak reserve, 40 kilometers southeast of Kabul. According to the report, the company aims to invest $150 million in the first year and $540 million in the next three years. The deal was done in 2021, which was the first international agreement of the current Taliban regime.

Jinping getting fed up in Afghanistan
But, terrorist attacks on Chinese citizens and projects have shaken China’s interests in Afghanistan. Allegedly, to deal with such terrorists, the Taliban are also being provided with better and sophisticated weapons by China. Significantly, the immense natural resources available in Afghanistan are a very easy and cheap jugaad for China’s Belt and Road Initiative. However, the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan seems to have put an end to China’s dreams in the region.
