China Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin announced Wednesday that the country will recognize and communicate with Afghanistan’s new government. Several Taliban members were named heads at the government Tuesday. Wang verified that China’s recognition of the Taliban government in a press briefing.
Among the new leaders are four ex-Guatanamo Bay inmates. Obama freed them in 2014 in exchange for Army servicemember Bowe Bergdahl. Now, Noorullah Noori is the acting minister of borders and tribal affairs, Abdul Haq Wasiq is acting intelligence director, Khairullah Khair is acting minister of information and culture and Mohammad Fazil Mazloom is their deputy minister of defense.
First, Wang voiced China’s support for the new government heads, calling their nominations a “necessary step” in reconstruction. “This has ended more than 3 weeks of anarchy in Afghanistan,” Wang said. “China respects the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Afghanistan.”
After the U.S. military left and the Taliban took over, Wang called for an “open and inclusive” government. Now, they’ve given their approval to the Taliban.
“We hope the new Afghanistan authorities will listen broadly to people of all races and factions, so as to meet the aspirations of its own peoples and the expectations of the international community,” Wang said.
Meanwhile, the Taliban still struggles against resistance fighters in the Panjshir province.

FL bill bans critical race theory in schools, businesses to end ‘discomfort’, ‘psychological stress’
Florida has introduced a new bill to combat the woke culture of teaching “critical race theory” or CRT. The bill aims to avoid making people “discomfort” when being taught CRT by banning it from public schools and private businesses.
On January 18, it passed the state Senate Committee on Education with six ‘yeas’ and three ‘nays.’ It now moves to debate among state senators. The bill states individuals shouldn’t be made to “feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race, color sex, or national origin.”
Additionally, the bill states educators and businesses cannot teach that “one race, religion, ethnicity, or sex is inherently superior to another race, religion, ethnicity or sex; an individual, by virtue, the individual’s race, religion, ethnicity, or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive whether consciously or unconsciously.”
In June of 2021, Florida’s state Board of education banned CRT from public school classrooms for the purpose of guarding children against lessons that could “distort historical events.” Governor Ron DeSantis supported the measure in front of state senators in Wildwood, Florida in December of 2021, saying:
“Nobody wants this crap, OK? This is an elite-driven phenomenon being driven by bureaucratic elites, elites in universities and elites in corporate America and they’re trying to shove it down the throats of the American people. You’re not doing that in the state of Florida.”
Naturally in politics, there are plenty of those who are against the idea. “Students deserve the best education we can provide, and that means giving them a true picture of their world and our shared history as Americans. Hiding facts doesn’t change them” said Florida Education Association (FEA) President Andrew Spar in a statement to ABC News. “Give kids the whole truth and equip them to make up their own minds and think for themselves.”
