The Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program, Joint Center in cooperation with the Embassy of Kazakhstan in Stockholm, presents the CACI & SRSP Online Forum: Peace in Afghanistan: A Kazakhstani Perspective.
Amid the continued conflict in Afghanistan, Central Asian states have continued to intensify their engagement with their southern neighbor. Led by Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, Central Asians are no longer seeking to contain Afghanistan but are instead actively contributing to the country’s development. Kazakhstan’s commitment to peace and development in Afghanistan is long-standing, and its contributions manifold. In this event organized in cooperation with the Embassy of Kazakhstan, Ambassador Kaliyev will discuss the situation in Afghanistan, the role of foreign players and actors, Afghanistan’s impact on regional security, as well as the role of Europe and America and avenues for cooperation with Kazakhstan.
This online forum is the first of a series of events marking the 30th anniversary of the independence of Kazakhstan.
Speakers: H.E. Talgat Kaliyev, Special Representative of the President of Kazakhstan for Afghanistan, and Frederick Starr, Chairman, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program.
Moderators: Svante E. Cornell, Director, Central Asia-Caucasus Institute & Silk Road Studies Program, and Aida Yermekkalieva, Chargé d’Affaires a.i., Embassy of Kazakhstan, Stockholm.
