In QED electrostatic forces are mediated by field theoretic effects known as virtual "particles" if I am not mistaken, but I don't know how string theory explains electrostatic interactions between two charges. I heard of virtual strings but string theory isn't really the same as QFT and virtual strings are not real strings, so I am left confused.
