Why This Mission Now?
We are certainly at crucial juncture in the relationship of Afghanistan and the United States. The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul is sponsoring six members from World Affairs Councils across the country to travel to Afghanistan March 25th – 31st. Delegates were chosen from The World Affairs Councils, because it “represents and supports the largest U.S. National non-partisan network of local councils that are dedicated to educating, inspiring and engaging Americans in international affairs and the critical global issues of our times.”
We are going to Afghanistan to meet with various sectors of Afghan society, Afghan government officials and U.S. officials (diplomatic and military) to establish a greater connection between Afghanistan and the American public.
