According to the Islamist militia, China has promised to keep its embassy in Kabul open and will “beef up” relations, saying Beijing is “ready to invest in and reconstruct” Afghanistan.

“China is our principal partner and for us represents a fundamental and extraordinary opportunity because it’s ready to invest in and reconstruct our country,” Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the fundamentalist group, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

China is one of the few countries which did not evacuate its staff from the Kabul embassy when the Taliban entered the city.

Mr Mujahid said the Chinese would help to revive Afghan copper mining.

“We hold in high regard the One Belt One Road project that will serve to revive the ancient Silk Road,” Mr Mujahid told La Repubblica.

“Beyond that, we have rich copper mines which thanks to the Chinese can be brought back into production and modernised.
