Berlin, 7 June 2018
Hamid Karzai, the former President of Afghanistan (2004-14) met Members of the German Bundestag, representatives of several ministries and think tanks, as well as a number of select experts for a Political Breakfast in Berlin. Mr Karzai spoke about the current security situation in Afghanistan, as well as the role of the international community – and Germany and the US in particular – in stabilizing and rebuilding the country. The conversation proceeded with a discussion on domestic politics, and the prospects for a peace process with the Taliban.
