A Conversation with Husain Haqqani, Former Pakistani Ambassador to the U.S.

Apr 30, 2018

On this edition of ST, we speak with Ambassador Husain Haqqani, who served as Pakistan's ambassador to the United States from 2008 to 2011. Now working as a Hudson Institute Senior Fellow, where he is also the Director for South and Central Asia, Haqqani is widely credited with managing a difficult American-Pakistani partnership during a critical phase in the global war on terrorism. He has, moreover, served as an advisor to four different Pakistani Prime Ministers; he is also co-editor of the journal Current Trends in Islamist Ideology. He spoke recently at the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations, giving a talk on "U.S. Interests in Afghanistan and Pakistan," and he spoke with us while he was in town.
