On July 20, the Valdai Club held an online discussion titled “Afghanistan After the US Withdrawal: A Security Vacuum Forever?”
What is the legacy of the Americans and their allies in Afghanistan? What does it mean in terms of the future structure of the country? How can Russia protect itself and its neighbours after the Americans leave? Is it possible to intensify the intra-Afghan negotiations amid the current conditions? If the government changes, what to expect from the Taliban? These and other issues were addressed by the participants in the online discussion.
