March 7th, Afghanistan; Dr Heidi Meyer.

“After 18 years of America’s longest war, US officials are now sitting down  at the table  with the Taliban to negotiate an agreement whereby the Taliban will agree to take a share in ensuring Afghanistan is not a safe haven for terrorists in exchange for full US troop withdrawal.”

What historical events led to this agreement?  What is at stake and why could this not have been done 18 years ago at the Bonn Conference in 2001 when nations strategized the future of Afghanistan without the Taliban at the table.  Dr Heidi Meyer, current Master of the Lord Leycester and former US diplomat in Kabul will present.

This exceptional talk will be held at Dormer Place at 19.30. Entrance £2.00 at the door
