No “vacuum” in Afghanistan must be crammed: Chinese language FM

BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) — There is no “vacuum” in Afghanistan that needs to be filled because that land belongs to the people of Afghanistan, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Friday.

China calls on the international community to give firm support for the “Afghan-led, Afghan-owned” reconciliation process, and play a constructive role from the sidelines to build a momentum for dialogue, Wang said at a press conference on the sidelines of the country’s annual legislative session.
