The future of US-Pakistan relations

Past Event

With the Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, understanding the role Pakistan will play, both in the region, and with the United States, has become increasingly important. To what extent will the U.S.-Pakistan relationship be influenced by the environment in Afghanistan? What can we predict about the future of Pakistan’s relationships with world powers such as China and India? How does Pakistan’s current leadership differ from its predecessors in its approach to the U.S.? What is the Biden administration’s approach to Pakistan?

On October 13, the Center for Middle East Policy addressed these and other questions, further examining how recent developments in Afghanistan and changing regional dynamics will alter the trajectory of the U.S.-Pakistan relationship.

Viewers submitted questions by emailing or by joining the conversation on Twitter with #USPakistan.
