The Atlantic Council will host an interactive discussion on recent developments in Afghanistan with Ambassador to the United States H.E. Roya Rahmani and NPR’s National Security Correspondent Greg Myre. The discussion will include insights and on-the-ground analysis of the fourth presidential election and its relevance to the peace process.

On September 28, 2019, Afghanistan went to the polls with the lowest voter turnout since 2001. With a recent uptick in violence and a setback in peace talks with the United States, Kabul continues to face uncertain times. Ambassador Rahmani will address the successes of the election, the Afghan people’s resolve for democracy, the importance of continuing to institute faith in democratic institutions in Afghanistan, and the incoming leadership’s mandate, including negotiating peace with the Taliban.
