Hindsight Up Front: Implications of Afghanistan Withdrawal for China and Russia

September 10, 2021, 9:00-10:00am

The U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Taliban’s return to power have major implications for two key U.S. competitors: China and Russia. What do developments in Afghanistan mean for their interests and for their relations with Afghanistan? Please join the Wilson Center for the latest event of its “Afghanistan: Hindsight Up Front” initiative as they address these questions and more.

This will be an online-only event. If you would like to pose a question, please email it to [email protected] or tweet it to @AsiaProgram.
