BEIJING - China has called for an early resumption of stability in Afghanistan one day after the U.S. embassy in Kabul was attacked by Taliban militants.
"The Chinese side has noted the incident and gives its attention to the security situation in Afghanistan," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said in response to a question on the attack.
NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the assaults were aimed at thwarting plans to hand over security to Afghan forces but they will not succeed.
"We hope that the parties involved will sincerely take responsibility for helping Afghanistan improve its capabilities when handing over security to Afghan forces," Jiang said. (Monitoring Desk)
