BEIJING (Reuters) – Afghanistan should not be used as a geopolitical battleground by the international community, China’s State Councillor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a phone call on Thursday with British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.

The situation in Afghanistan is still unstable and uncertain and the international community should not add more pressure to it, Wang was cited as saying in a statement released by China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
