MOFA: Humanitarian aid should not be politicized

China on Thursday voiced support for the UN in playing a greater coordinating role in assisting Afghanistan and called for joint efforts from the international community to provide humanitarian assistance to the war-torn country.

On Wednesday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to exempt humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan from an asset freeze against designated leaders of the Taliban and associated entities.

Referring to the resolution during a regular press conference, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian said it provides a clear legal basis for continued humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, stressing that "China always believes that humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan does not violate Security Council resolutions and should not be conditional, nor should it be politicized under any circumstances."
