Broadening the Lens Beyond Security: The Next Few Decades of U.S.-Pakistan Relations

January 22, 2018 • 3:00 – 4:30 pm EST
Relations between the U.S. and Pakistan have been strained in recent months. It is important for the United States and Pakistan to continue their 70-year relationship. Pakistan currently ranks as the sixth largest country in the world, and they will shortly become the fifth. This conversation seeks to move beyond the security concerns and focus on development, economic, and other opportunities for partnership between the United States and Pakistan.

Join us for a discussion with His Excellency Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry. He was appointed the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to the United States on April 24, 2017. He has served as a Foreign Service Officer for over 36 years, with bilateral and multilateral involvement in the field of diplomacy. Prior to this appointment, he was a Foreign Secretary of Pakistan, representative of the foreign ministry, Additional Foreign Secretary for the UN and Disarmament Affairs, and Director General for relations with South Asian countries. He holds a Masters Degree in International Relations from Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a Bachelor of Science Degree from Punjab University, Lahore.
