China negotiates with Taliban to resume access to lithium and copper deposits

Chinese mining groups are working to gain access to lithium and copper deposits in Afghanistan. Representatives of one of these groups went to Kabul to negotiate with representatives of the Taliban *.

It is reported by the Financial Times.

According to media reports, the Chinese talked to the Taliban in Afghanistan about a copper deposit in the Mess Ainak area, for the development of which the PRC had a license.

In addition, employees from at least one large business group in China traveled to the provinces of Nangarhar and Laghman in the east of the country to assess the availability of other minerals.

According to media reports, negotiations between Chinese companies and the Taliban are at an early stage, and there is no guarantee that China will resume mining in Afghanistan.

Two Chinese companies – the world’s largest lithium producer Ganfeng Lithium and Tianqi Lithium – have denied rumors of their participation in the talks.
