The quality of the relationship between the United States and Pakistan will play a critical role in determining global terrorism trends over the next several years. Pakistan has been wracked by myriad challenges in the last few months, especially from massive floods that have caused billions in damages to critical infrastructure. Tensions between Islamabad and Washington over the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan, security of NATO convoys, and intensifying drone missile strikes in Pakistan’s tribal border areas continue to raise concerns in both capitals about the trade-offs required of the relationship. Despite the challenges, and indeed, because of them, the United States and Pakistan will forge ahead this week with their third ministerial-level Strategic Dialogue.
Join us for a discussion with distinguished speakers to address the outcome of the latest Strategic Dialogue, prospects for U.S.-Pakistan counterterrorism cooperation, and how the two countries can stabilize relations in the interest
