U.S. Government Officials, Afghan Ambassador to Discuss Afghan Peace Talks at Georgetown


July 8, 2019 – United States Government officials will join Ambassador of Afghanistan to the United States H.E. Roya Rahmani and Afghan men and women to discuss the ongoing U.S.-Taliban peace talks and intra-Afghan talks.

The event, “Ensuring an Inclusive Afghan Peace Process,” will take place at Georgetown University on Thursday, July 11 at 10:30am in Copley Formal Lounge.

As U.S. Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation, Amb. Zalmay Khalilzad, continues the seventh round of peace talks with the Taliban in Doha—and intra-Afghan negotiations are underway—this timely Georgetown conversation will highlight the role of Afghan women and civil society in ending America’s longest war and bringing sustainable peace and security to Afghanistan.

The event is cohosted by Amb. Rahmani and Amb. Melanne Verveer, executive director of the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, in partnership with the U.S.-Afghan Women’s Council and the Alliance in Support of the Afghan People.
