Afghanistan sees surge in Taliban violence | Printing currency abroad: Good deal or security threat? (CGTN)

After a spike in violence that’s been plaguing Afghanistan this month, President Ashraf Ghani called for a conditional ceasefire with the Taliban. One year on, why isn’t the Trump administration’s new strategy for Afghanistan working? What’s next? A report that a Chinese company has been given a contract to print Indian currency has surfaced in India, prompting national security concerns. Is printing a country's currency overseas economically sound or a national security risk? Are the concerns of Indian critics justified? Why have other countries given China a license to print their currency?
