NEW DELHI: With an unannounced ceasefire largely holding in Afghanistan, is there hope for a reduction in bloodshed? Are the Taliban and an Afghan team moving towards negotiating a future political structure? How does the U.S. continuing troop withdrawal affect the government’s position? And should India open a public channel to the Taliban before intra-Afghan talks begin? Talking Point anchored by StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi this week looks at these and other questions in a discussion with Barnett Rubin, Senior Fellow and Associate Director of the Centre on International Cooperation, New York University where he directs the Afghanistan Pakistan Regional Programme and Lotfullah Najafizada, the head of TOLOnews TV. He has been a TIME Magazine Next Generation Global Leader and been on the Forbes’ 30 under 30 media list.
