Minister Ali A. Jalali, Distinguished Professor, Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies, National Defense University

 


Wednesday, 28 January, 2009
5-7 PM
The Rome Auditorium, Rome Building
1619 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W.
Washington, DC 20036

NOTE: Presentations will be “off the record” 

It has been said that the Afghan problem is in fact a Pakistan problem, and the Pakistan problem is ultimately an India-Pakistan problem. To the extent this is so, can Afghanistan expect a secure future without some resolution of its relations with Pakistan and of Pakistan’s relations with India? The Mumbai events force these questions to the fore.  At this Forum meeting two leading authorities on Afghanistan will offer their insights on Afghan’s complex relations with its large eastern neighbors, asking whether and how NATO's presence in the region affects the outcome, and how these matters in turn affect NATO's mission in Afghanistan."

Light refreshments will be served at 5:00 PM.  The program will begin promptly at 5:30 PM and conclude at 7 PM sharp. RSVP for this event is mandatory. To RSVP, please send an email with your name and affiliation to caci2@jhu.edu or call 202-663-7721.
