BEIJING – China’s President Xi Jinping said via video that “relevant parties” in Afghanistan should eradicate terrorism and that China will provide more help to the country within its capacity, according to a report on a regional summit by state media.

“Certain countries” should assume their due responsibilities for Afghanistan’s future development as the “instigators” of the situation, he said, at a meeting of the leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

Afghanistan should be guided to be more open and inclusive, and to pursue moderate domestic and foreign policies, he said.
