The Americans led by Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad are moving towards an agreement with The Taliban even as campaigning for Afghan Presidential polls continues. Do the two processes reconcile or are they at loggerheads? How should India up its game to be relevant and protect its goodwill, security and assets? Is the Taliban to be trusted? Should New Delhi have a special representative like it did in the past? Saad Mohseni, the head of the Moby Group and founder of the Tolo TV Network discusses all the relevant issues in this comprehensive dialogue with SNI Associate Editor Amitabh P Revi.
Saad Mohseni has been described by the Asia Society as a ‘Game Changer’ and has been recognised by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world, by Foreign policy magazine as one of the top 100 global thinkers. The BBC named him one of 10 men globally championing gender equality. Saad Mohseni also serves on the boards of the International Crisis Group (ICG) and the Washington DC-based International Center for Journalists (ICFJ). One of four children of an Afghan diplomat, Saad spent his early years in the United Kingdom, Kabul, Islamabad and Tokyo, before migrating to Melbourne, Australia.
