Interview: Afghanistan after breakdown of US-Taliban talks!

Sharing a face to face interview of mine by International Affairs Review regarding current situation in Afghanistan after peace talks were called off by US.

The Interview is titled “For any prospects of peace in Afghanistan the intra-Afghan dialogue is a must”

The interviewer is Ms Aditi Bhaduri. I am sharing the link to read full interview.


The interview covers the situation after breakdown of US-Taliban Talks, need for Intra-Afghan dialogue inescapable for any remote possibility of peace, Role of Pakistan, Taliban’s take on Kashmir and many such Issues.

A major concern I visualise is that With Taliban getting stronger, radicalisation of Pakistan, existence of al Qaeda, Haqqani network and Daesh, I see a large caliphate in the making in the Af-Pak region.
