China and Afghanistan to create a counter-terrorist mountain brigade

China and Afghanistan are working in close coordination on setting up a counter-terrorist mountain brigade in the northern Badakhshan region. According to a report of the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, China is to build its first military base in Afghanistan for hundreds of troops carrying out counter-terrorism training missions across the border from its western Xinjiang region.

Rejecting the report as false and baseless, Mosazai said: “The Chinese side is providing assistance to Afghanistan so that we can set up a mountain brigade in the north of Afghanistan in order to enhance our counter-terrorism operations in the region.”

There will be no Chinese military personnel of any kind involved in Afghan soil, said mosazai. China also denied the report.£

China wants to help Afghanistan to fight Islamic State Group in the country but also separatist militants from Xinjiang's Uighurs, fighting and training inside Afghanistan.
