As Russian forces invaded Ukraine, Pakistan's PM Imran Khan, one of Vladimir Putin’s few friends these days, visited Moscow. His trip did not go down well in the US, a longtime ally of Islamabad.
On this episode of GZERO World, Ian Bremmer talks to Pakistan’s former Foreign Minister, Hina Khar, about Afghanistan, her country’s future choices, and, of course, India.
Khar argues that the West needs to accept its responsibility for starving Afghans. She also thinks that the best way to help end the humanitarian crisis is to talk to the Taliban.
Pakistan's former top diplomat also says it's time for her country to take a step back from the global stage to focus on fixing its own problems, and calls out India for its laws against Muslims and moves in Kashmir.
Bonus: as Ukraine fights back against the Russian war machine, ordinary citizens are taking up arms. We interview the leader of The Wolverines, a self-defense group just outside Kyiv.
