Taliban Afghanistan Crisis Live Updates: US airlifts 19,000 people from Afghanistan in last 24 hours, China in talks with Taliban to expand CPEC

  • The United States has evacuated 19,000 people from Afghanistan in the past 24 hours, said the White House on Wednesday morning. With this, the total number of evacuees from Afghanistan since the operation began on August 14 has reached 82,300, White House deputy spokesperson Andrew Bates.
  • At a time when world leaders are still weary of diplomatic dealings with Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover, China has established its first diplomatic contact with the militant group, aimed at pushing forward its ambitious project — the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) — to Kabul. Sources said that in a bid to push the CPEC, China is exploring opportunities to exploit Pakistan to enter the war-torn country.
