Owaisi further said China would also benefit from Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan.
Earlier on Monday, the AIMIM chief said India should have opened dialogue with the Taliban before it had full control of Afghanistan.
“Now that Afghanistan is in complete control of Taliban, we have no communication, no dialogue with them. All international and security experts have said talks should have been done. But, for last seven years the central government has failed to read what is happening,” he said.
