Brahimi on Afghanistan & Iraq

This article is more than 12 years old.

In Iraq, protestors continue to demonstrate in recognition of the 4th anniversary of the fall of Baghdad. At the same time, news out of Afghanistan describes a Taliban resurgence, military deaths, and the beheading of journalists.

Ambassador Lakhdar Brahimi is familiar with issues in both countries. Originally from Algeria, Brahimi served as the UN special representative to Afghanistan from 2001 to 2004, then as Special Advisor to the Secretary General of the UN until December of 2005.

He was in town to speak at the Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday, and met in Cambridge with WBUR's Bob Oakes to talk about what's happening in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This program aired on April 11, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
