Nikki Haley warns CHINA could take over Bagram air base as Taliban look to Beijing for help

The U.S. must rebuild fragile alliances with partner nations or risk rivals such as China moving into Afghanistan to collect strategic assets including Bagram Air Base, according to Nikki Haley, the former ambassador to the United Nations.

The fate of the base, abandoned by U.S. troops in the middle of the night at the start of July, has been seized on by President Biden's critics to symbolize what they say was an ill-thought out withdrawal.

And now the base, which was once the hub of America's war in Afghanistan, could be a prize for rivals seeking to extend their reach.
