Register for the Event

As the United States plans for its withdrawal from Afghanistan and reviews its policies toward Pakistan, President Obama must weigh the potential threats and challenges for U.S. interests in the region. Among the destabilizing factors in both countries is the ongoing presence and influence of the Taliban. Ahmed Rashid, prominent Pakistani journalist and author of the new book, Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan (Viking Adult, 2012), examines these crucial issues as the president and other Western leaders grapple with how best to work with an often unreliable and unstable Pakistan.

On March 22, Foreign Policy at Brookings hosted Ahmed Rashid for a discussion of his new book and the treacherous path ahead for relations among the U.S., Pakistan and Afghanistan. Following Rashid’s opening remarks, Brookings Senior Fellows Bruce Riedel and Stephen Cohen joined the discussion. Senior Fellow Michael O’Hanlon, director of research for Foreign Policy, moderated the discussion.

After the program, participants took audience questions.
