With yesterday's announcement that the reclusive Mullah Omar, leader of the Taliban, had died somewhere between two to three years ago — many policymakers around the globe are attempting to grapple the implications this news has on the Afghan government and its dealing with the Taliban. Will this announcement complicate negotiations, or could it serve as a boon in assisting the Afghan government in its efforts in dealing with radicalism?

To explore these questions and more, please join us for a special members and press call with Ambassador James Cunningham, the Khalilzad Chair on Afghanistan, and former US Ambassador to Afghanistan. Huma Haque, Associate Director of the Atlantic Council's South Asia Center, will moderate the call.
