The Heat: Afghan peace talks

The Heat

Former adversaries, the United States and the Taliban laying down their arms, agreeing in principle to a framework for peace, that could end a decades-long conflict in Afghanistan.

Under the tentative agreement, the U.S. will pull out its troops, in return for assurances that the Taliban will never again be a haven for international terrorists. So, can the Afghan peace process succeed?

CGTN’s Rahim Faiez has a report from Kabul.

To discuss: 

  • Omar Samad served as the Afghan Ambassador to France and Canada.
  • Shuja Nawaz is a distinguished fellow at the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center.
  • Asfandyar Mir is a fellow at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation.
