|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Qin Gang's Remarks on the So-Called Issue of China Contributing Troops to ISAF in Afghanistan
Q: It's reported that the British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has recently suggested that China contribute troops to International Security Assistance Forces (ISAF) in Afghanistan. What's China's response?
A: The Chinese Government consistently supports the efforts of Afghan Government and people to maintain stability, develop economy and realize peaceful reconstruction. China's position on the issue of Afghanistan has not changed a bit. Except for the UN peace-keeping missions approved by the UN Security Council, China never sends a single troop abroad. It's out of the question to send Chinese troops to ISAF in Afghanistan.
