China and Afghanistan reached a "new important consensus" on Tuesday on combating the East Turkistan Islamic Movement as Afghanistan's new president arrived in Beijing for his first state visit since being sworn in.

Beijing also vowed to strengthen its support for reconstruction in Afghanistan, pledging assistance of 2 billion yuan ($327 million) from 2014 to 2017. It will also train 3,000 professionals in various fields for Kabul.

"President Ghani said that the new Afghan government will firmly support China to fight the ETIM," said Kong Xuanyou, director-general of the Department of Asian Affairs at the Foreign Ministry.
