Diplomacy works when there is military pressures on the ground


Ahmad Shah Mohibi is the Founder of Rise to Peace. Diplomacy works when there is a military presence on the ground, said Ahmad Shah Mohibi while offering three options for the US in Afghanistan.

Repost from the CGTN America:

With just weeks left before a deadline to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan, Washington is pushing for a peace deal between the Kabul government and the Taliban, ending two decades of war.

The U.S. is circulating a proposal calling for Ashraf Ghani’s government to be replaced with an interim administration, something the Afghan leader opposes.

President Ghani is instead floating new presidential elections in six months.

Joining the discussion:

  • Omar Samad is fmr. Afghan ambassador to France and Canada
  • Michael Kugelman is deputy director and senior associate for South Asia at the Wilson Center
  • Ahmad Shah Mohibi is the founder and president of the non-profit organization, Rise to Peace
  • Shuja Nawaz is Distinguished Fellow, South Asia Center at the Atlantic Council
