After Pakistan, China also snubs India-hosted summit on Afghanistan

Srinagar: Days after Islamabad announced backing out of India’s NSA moot on Afghanistan, Beijing on Tuesday said it will also not attend the regional security dialogue on Afghan issue to be hosted by New Delhi.

“Due to scheduling reasons, it is inconvenient for China to attend the meeting. We have already given our reply to the Indian side,” Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin said during his regular briefing while responding to a question about whether China has declined to attend the dialogue.

Last month, India invited Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, and all the central Asian nations to attend the ‘Delhi Regional Security Dialogue on Afghanistan’, scheduled to be held on November 10.
