Chinese foreign minister makes proposals on Afghanistan

LONDON, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi made four proposals Thursday on the Afghan reconstruction at the London Conference on Afghanistan.

"Afghanistan's reconstruction process had gone through twists and turns," Yang said in a speech. "The successful elections held by the Afghan people opened a new chapter in the history of the country."

On the next stage of Afghan reconstruction, Yang made the following proposals: The international community should help create enabling conditions for safeguarding the security of the country and its people and help the country achieve economic development.

His other two proposals were that the international community should help Afghanistan improve governance and enhance coordination and cooperation in helping Afghanistan.

"The international community should continue paying attention to Afghanistan and offer greater support and assistance to that country," he said. "It should help Afghanistan strengthen its sovereignty, ownership and development capacity."

Yang emphasized that China will help the Afghan people embark on the path of peace, stability and development as early as possible.
