The eleventh Herat Security Dialogue kicked off in Tajikistan. This session, organized by the Afghanistan Institute for Strategic Studies, took place in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, on the morning of November 27.
Titled “Reimagining Afghanistan: Ways Forward,” the eleventh Herat Security Dialogue is scheduled to span two days.
Participants from various countries, including opponents of the Taliban such as Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan, Ismaiel Khan, a Jihadist leader, and some officials from the previous Afghan government, are present at this conference.
In the first panel of this session, Rahmatullah Nabil, the former head of national security of the previous government, Mohsin Dawar, a member of the Pakistani parliament and a leader of the Pashtun Protection Movement, Dr. Esther Zubeiri, a researcher in the United Nations Security Council, and David Sidney, a researcher at the Center for Strategic Studies in America, will deliver speeches.
The Herat Security Conference, which commenced in 2012, primarily engages in discussions on political and security issues related to Afghanistan. It features prominent analysts and policymakers who provide suggestions.
After the Taliban came to power, this conference has been held either online or in other countries. The tenth Herat Security Conference, held last year in Dushanbe, emphasized the formation of an interim government in Afghanistan.
