The Taliban Endorse Trump: American Choices in Afghanistan’s Peace Process
November 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
Can peace talks in Afghanistan succeed? Is the establishment of a misogynist Taliban theocracy in Afghanistan inevitable? What choices face the next U.S. administration and what hope is there for a ceasefire? Dr. Naysan Adlparvar talks with 2020 World Fellows Musa Mahmodi, the former director of Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission, and Hamish Falconer, a former British diplomat about Afghanistan’s peace talks, which have been running for over a month in Qatar. With a Taliban offensive in the south, terrorist attacks in Kabul, and ongoing US efforts to negotiate a reduction in violence floundering, the approach of the next American administration will be vital. Following his late-night tweet claiming that all US troops in Afghanistan would be home by Christmas, the Taliban have endorsed President Trump. Where next for U.S. policy in Afghanistan?Registration Info
