By Atlantic Council

Within recent weeks, the Biden administration has made clear its priority goals in Central Asia: withdrawal from Afghanistan and renewed outreach to Iran. In order for the administration to reach these goals, it must coordinate a coalition of the United States’ allies, argues Atlantic Council Board Director Ahmed Charai. Read Charai’s latest in The Hill on why US cooperation with allies is the key to successfully withdrawing from Afghanistan and reducing tensions with Iran.
