Seize this moment. Give negotiations a real chance.
Like many across Afghanistan and the world, we have been alarmed by the rapidly unfolding events in Afghanistan. We have been stunned by the sudden and unexpected collapse of the Afghan government with a growing concern for the stability and security of Afghanistan.
The unexpected vacuum in leadership and the return of the Taliban created panic, fear, and elevated the crisis in Afghanistan to unprecedented times. We, at the Heart of Asia Society, remain committed to our work, to research, conduct timely analysis and share our expertise on the ways out of this crisis.
In light of this recent development, the Heart of Asia Society is issuing this statement with suggestions for the Afghan sides as well as the international community to consider now. We will continue to share timely analysis as the situation develops.
