We are honored to have another AsiaGlobal Fellow from Afghanistan to be the speaker at a seminar on "Exploring the Afghanistan-US Relations and China’s Interest in the Region: an Afghan Perspective." We will explore and unfold the complex dynamics of Afghanistan-US relations by covering the historical background of the relationship, analyzing the current state of affairs, and exploring future challenges of Afghanistan. We will also look at China's interest in the region and its implications for the Afghanistan-US relationship.
