Hamid Karzai's term as Afghan President is almost up. Now the Afghan people have to choose a new leader. The question is who is most likely to replace the President?
The secretary of state made a short visit to Afghanistan to discuss the new US policy in South Asia. He told Afghan leaders he was open to peace with the Taliban if they accepted military defeat.
Germany is a highly-coveted partner on the international stage. As a respected global power, it needs a strong mandate from the upcoming elections, says former Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
The Taliban attack, which killed more than 150 Afghan soldiers over the weekend, has raised serious questions about President Ashraf Ghani's ability to govern the country. Is it time for the president to step down?
The Taliban is now stronger than at any point since the international mission to Afghanistan began 16 years ago. The US and NATO are considering sending more troops to stabilize the security situation.
