Perspectives (Afghanistan)

PERSPECTIVES:

  • AFGHANISTAN: Even as the Taliban move toward peace talks with the Afghan government, a new reign of terror orchestrated by the Islamic State’s regional affiliate -ISKP- is taking shape in Afghanistan. ISKP is an emerging threat that represents itself as a replacement for the Taliban. With their fighters coming from Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan as well, ISKP has the capacity to destabilize Central Asia once it gets a firm foothold in Afghanistan. This remains one of the major concerns of Russia and Iran, with interests in the region.
