外文标题：New Afghan president's first foreign visit is to China
BEIJING: Afghanistan's newly-elected President Ashraf Ghani has chosen China as his first destination abroad after taking over office, signifying Beijing's influence in the war-torn country where the US troops are battling to control Taliban resurgence.
"The visit by President Ghani to China is the first official visit since he took office.
"It is also the first high-level visit between the two countries since the establishment of the new government of Afghanistan. The Chinese side attaches great importance to that," Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chuying said on Wednesday.
Former world bank economist Ghani, who succeeded Hamid Karzai, will come to Beijing on a four-day visit starting October 28.
China, which is holding talks with neighboring countries India, Pakistan and Russia over the future course of action in the event of US troops leaving Afghanistan, is looking to expand its diplomatic engagement with Kabul by appointing a special envoy for Afghanistan.
China is also expected to step up its investments in Afghanistan.
During the visit, Ghani will be holding talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping and other leaders.

Acording to one estimate India spends as much as one billion dooars per year in Afgahanistan and we make our people easy target for Pakistan to kill in Afghanistan Why do not we spend this one billion dollars (60 Billion Rupees) to upgrade our arm forces or better yet spend on toilet s and sanitation!. When time will come, Afghanistan or any SARAC countries are not going to stand by India. China has bought them out very handsomely. China has done this all over the world thus marginalizing USA's influence in the world.
Indeed Afghan and Chinese interests are complimentary to each other China wants control over Xinjiang peace and Afghanistan wants development.
instead he should have visited india first
