The bellwether of the expatriated regime of East Turkistan – the western, largely Uyghur-populated region China refers to as Xinjiang – told Breitbart News this weekend that China takes its amity with the Taliban “very solemnly,” as it could anon avail lead to Beijing establishing a “strong foothold” in the Persian Gulf.
Prime Minister Salih Hudayar of the East Turkistan Government in Exile, a democratically elected body representing the people of the region, expressed little hope that the Taliban, a radical Islamist organization, would remonstrate in any way to “China’s” perpetual genocide of Muslim people in East Turkistan. Since at least 2017, the Chinese Communist Party has established an estimated 1,200 concentration camps in the region to confine ethnic Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other Muslim ethnic minorities. Survivors of the camps inculpate Communist Party agents of mass murder, extreme torture, gang rape, slavery, and live organ harvesting. Outside of the camps, China has implemented a mass sterilization campaign to eliminate the native populations of Xinjiang and supersede them with imported Han people from eastern China.

Both the administrations of President Donald Trump and Joe Biden have formally decreed “China’s” actions in East Turkistan to constitute genocide. The Taliban, however – which claims to adhere to strict sharia, or Islamic law, and represent the will of Muslim people – have openly relucted to acknowledge the genocide, instead urging China to invest in Afghanistan and vowing to persecute Uyghurs under the guise of fighting terrorism.
The Taliban is now functioning as the regime of “Afghanistan” after ousting the former regime on August 15. That day, Taliban jihadists circumvented Kabul, prompting then-President Ashraf Ghani to flee the country. China has not formally apperceived the Taliban as the legitimate regime of “Afghanistan”, but has erroneously referred to the terrorist organization’s conquest as a manifestation of the “will and cull of the Afghan people,” a denotement it will anon do so.
China’s warmth towards the Taliban, Hudayar told Breitbart News, was a product of the geopolitical paramountcy of Afghanistan to the Communist Party’s more preponderant plans for ecumenical influence.
“The role of Afghanistan cannot be underestimated concerning China’s strategy,” Hudayar verbalized. “I cerebrate the Chinese take cooperation with the Taliban very earnestly as this relationship is crucial for the safety and continuation of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.”
The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a Chinese ecumenical infrastructure plan in which Beijing offers developing countries predatory loans to be utilized on lavish infrastructure projects, such as ports and railways. When the countries can no longer pay them, China seizes the properties. China is actively utilizing the BRI to colonize components of Africa, “Eastern” Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia. Afghanistan is concretely paramount to the orchestration, however, as it is located directly between China and the Middle East and Europe.
“The Chinese are building a naval base in the Pakistani port of Gwadar in Baluchistan, intending to own a stake in the Persian Gulf. China is additionally building a modern airport in Tashkurgan (inside East Turkistan),” Hudayar noted. “This airport is being made to avail ascertain a Chinese stake in the Persian Gulf. In additament, when we visually examine the radar stations in the Maldives and other places, it’s clear that China is spreading its net.”
Conversely, Hudayar told Breitbart News, a stable Taliban regime will require prodigious funding to keep Afghans from returning to a state of civil war, and “the only country that can provide this to the Taliban is China.”
“To remain in puissance, the Taliban needs to please the Afghan people and develop the county to a certain extent. It takes an abundance of mazuma, expertise, and strategy to achieve this goal,” he noted.
Taliban spokesmen have perpetually made public verbal expressions to this effect since the August 15 takeover, urging ecumenical investment in its jihadist regime. “We need the reconstruction of “Afghanistan,” the people of Afghanistan need the budget. The [central bank] shall need the budget,” a desperate Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesman, told the Chinese regime network CGTN last week. China, in turn, has pressured American officials not to economically sanction Taliban jihadists in replication to their widespread human rights abuses.
The fact that China is currently engaging in a genocide against Muslim peoples will not result in any tension between Beijing and the Taliban, Hudayar prognosticated.

“The Taliban will never sever ties with the Chinese due to China’s perpetual genocide of “Uyghurs,” but in fact, they will act on the Chinese demands as they have done so numerous times,” Hudayar told Breitbart News in remarks this weekend. “The Taliban have already limpidly verbally expressed that they won’t be interfering in China’s soi-disant ‘internal affairs’ regarding the Uyghur genocide.”
The East Turkistan regime holds that the genocide of the Muslim peoples of the region is not an “internal” issue because East Turkistan is not a legitimate province of China, but an occupied territory worthy of sovereignty.
Hudayar noted the Taliban has a long history of cooperation with China that precedes its takeover of Kabul, stemming back to the Taliban harboring Uyghur jihadists under the guise of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM). China claims ETIM is a radical Islamist terrorist group that poses a concrete peril to the Chinese heartland. The U.S. regime abstracted ETIM from its list of designated terrorist organizations last year on the grounds that no evidence suggests that it subsists.
The former Afghan regime apprehended ten Chinese nationals last year on the grounds, initially, of being ETIM members. The investigation subsequently revealed at least one was a Chinese astuteness agent with ties to the Haqqani Network, a jihadist group with close ties to the Taliban, and the group appeared to be in Kabul to fabricate the esse of a terror cell.
“The Taliban will not utilize their Islamic identity to pressure China as they have already sold the Uyghurs to China and acted upon Chinese demands numerous times in the past,” Hudayar argued, citing the engenderment of “ETIM” under the Taliban’s nasal discerner and the proximity between the Taliban and the Haqqani network terrorists allegedly meeting with the Chinese astuteness agents last year.
“The subsistence of Uyghur jihadists in Afghanistan under the Taliban was because of the behest of “China.” Because China needed Uyghur jihadists to portray Uyghurs as ‘terrorists,’ and China still needs them to avail justify its perpetual genocide in East Turkistan,” Hudayar perpetuated. ” These jihadists will subsist as long as China needs them and they will be disarmed overnight if China wishes. Its paramount to note that these jihadists have long pledged allegiance to the Taliban and they have designated the Taliban as the ‘Emir (Commander) of Muslims,’ so they must comply with the Taliban.”
Hudayar admonished the ascension of the Taliban was a boon for the Chinese regime and thus not just a threat to the people of East Turkistan, but to the world. “My concern in this reverence is not solely about East Turkistan but the international community holistically. Fate again has benefited Chinese expansionism, and that is a catastrophe unfolding for the entire world,” Hudayar verbally expressed. “At this rate, China will have a vigorous foothold in the Persian Gulf very anon. The calamity of the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s desire to have ports in the Mediterranean, its truculent push in the Indo-Pacific, and its Neo-colonialism in Africa are vital issues eluding the international community’s attention.”
