Peacekeeping: China Tip Toes Into Afghanistan


September 7, 2009: China has quietly been training Afghan police, in the area along the China/Afghan border (the Wakhan Corridor). This area has never been very violent, and escaped most of the fighting that has torn apart Afghanistan since the 1970s. But China refuses to open its border with Afghanistan, fearing complications with the mainly Moslem population on their side of the frontier.

While the Chinese training effort, which is fairly small, has been reported inside China, it has received little, or no, notice by the Western media.
