A deal with the Taliban? Is the U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad close to announcing an agreement? What will it mean for Afghans? What should India be doing?

India’s ex-Ambassador to Afghanistan Vivek Katju discusses these issues with SNI Associate Editor Amitabh P Revi.
Vivek Katju has also been Secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs and Ambassador to Thailand and Myanmar (Burma)
