  • There are unconfirmed reports that Chinese military planes have landed at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan
  • New images from Afghanistan show that power has been restored to the base and multiple sources alleged military planes arrived at the former US stronghold
  • It comes after Yun Sun, Director of the China Program at Stimson Research Center, said China would be 'eager' to occupy the airfield and seize any equipment left over by the US
  • The move would be an attempt to strengthen ties with the Taliban and embarrass America
There have been multiple reports of military planes arriving at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, just hours after images emerged showing that power was restored to the base for the first time since US forces evacuated the stronghold in July.
Images circulating on social media appear to show the airbase's floodlights blazing in the distance, amid reports that several military planes have taken off and landed at the base in recent hours.
Several sources suggest that the aircraft are Chinese, given the Taliban are not thought to possess the expertise needed to power the base or maintain and fly several military aircraft.

It comes after Yun Sun, director of the China Program at the Stimson Center think tank, said China would likely be very interested in occupying the airbase following the US pullout.
US forces in Afghanistan abandoned their main base at Bagram airport overnight in July - shutting off the lights and slipping away into the night without telling government forces who were supposed to take it over.

The military airfield, located roughly an hour from Kabul, was first established by the Soviets during their own occupation of Afghanistan, after which it was seized by US forces and used as one of their main operating bases for 20 years.
According to U.S. News & World Report, China has been considering sending military personnel and economic development officials to Bagram airbase, and has conducted a 'feasibility study' on the effect of such a plan as part of its 'Belt and Road Initiative'.
A move to occupy Bagram airbase would go towards strengthening relations with the Taliban and further embarrassing America.
The report was denied by a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson.
'What I can tell everyone is that that is a piece of purely false information,' Wang Wenbin told reporters last month.

Why would a nation fight a war against foreign troops in their lands only to invite a different bunch of foreign troops?

Bagram can secure the corridor between Mazar and Kabul. While I highly highly doubt they will allow Chinese troops into the country, they will probably allow civilian mining companies and Humanitarian aid NGOs to set up shop so they can help Arabia lose the country. While the Chinese are there they will probably be peeking around Bagram to learn about the US way of doing things.

The Chinese planes were spotted by all of the early morning visitors to the railway lines in India. They have been described as the first line of early morning defense of India by modi himself.

Pak and China should jointly operate from the Bagram air base….
china has no interest in operating in Afghanistan. it hopes for a stable country that will not export terrorism to china, and towards that it is willing to build and provide aid to improve the local conditions and facilitate trade. that is all.
