A Pipeline for Landlocked Afghanistan: Can It Help Deliver Peace?

A Pipeline for Landlocked Afghanistan: Can It Help Deliver Peace?

Kandahar city

Two remarkable things happened at the end of February in Afghanistan: At the 2nd Kabul Process Conference on February 28, Afghanistan’s National Unity Government (NUG) unveiled a peace offer (without preconditions) to the Taliban in a bold attempt to restart the stalled political process and ultimately put an end to the country’s long-running conflict. And, on February 23, representatives from the region gathered in Herat to mark the start of work on the Afghan portion of the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline or TAPI (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India) gas pipeline project.
