Weeks after President Trump’s inauguration, Pakistan has sent its former foreign secretary, Aizaz Chaudhry, as its new ambassador in Washington. Amb. Chaudhry takes up his post as relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have reached a new nadir. Tensions are high on the border and extremists are attacking on both sides. U.S. frustration with Pakistan’s Afghanistan policy has grown. At USIP, Amb. Chaudhry will discuss Pakistan’s relationship with Afghanistan and opportunities for U.S.-Pakistani cooperation to promote peace and stability amid the Afghan conflict.
