Reflections on the 2022 Moscow Format Consultations on Afghanistan and regional security
By Nilofar Sakhi
The countries involved in the 2022 Moscow Format Consultations on Afghanistan have yet to address, let alone resolve, fundamental issues related to regional security and a political settlement for Afghanistan.
The participants of the Atlantic Council / Rockefeller Brothers Fund Strategic Dialogues have been working for the past eight months to develop a long-term strategic outlook to promote stability in Afghanistan consistent with Afghan, US, and European interests and values. This group of distinguished European, American, and Afghan diplomats, military officers, scholars, and analysts brought to our deliberations a deep understanding of the context both on the ground and among the allies. We explored a diplomatic-security framework based on the minimal conditions and variables necessary to realize a long-term vision of a sovereign, unified, democratic, peaceful, and prosperous Afghanistan and generated recommendations to support this vision.
