            Abstract

            [The United States is going to start off the well-publicized withdrawal of coalition forces from Afghanistan. This will signify a major shift of US strategic designs in the region: from short-time tactical operation to long-term strategic presence. The US forces in Afghanistan will likely be further reduced in due time, but the US efforts for transforming Afghanistan into a strategic stronghold will be enhanced. Such a shift will undoubtedly bring about a major implication for China, as a neutral and stable Afghanistan is in its interest. It is thus recommended to make joint efforts with like-minded countries to prevent Afghanistan from sliding into chaos and thus jeopardizing China, and to prevent the perpetualization of US strategic presence in Afghanistan.]
