China: 'Impulsive and Irrational' to Judge Taliban on Women's Rights

Gauging the legitimacy of Afghanistan’s new Taliban rulers based on their women’s rights¬†policy is “impulsive and irrational,” Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of China’s state-run Global Times, argued in an op-ed published Monday.

“Some people in China now use human rights issues, such as women’s rights, as the primary standard to decide if they will like the new regime in Afghanistan,” Hu wrote.
