I will be hosting a live discussion with US Ambassador to the United Nations Zalmay Khalilzad at a meeting at the New America Foundation today between 12:15 and 1:45 pm EST.
The session will stream live here at The Washington Note in the box above, and a digital recording will be posted here later for viewing at your own pleasure.
Khalilzad, who succeeded John Bolton and will himself be succeeded by Susan Rice, will talk about his thinking about America’s strategic challenges ahead — and about the United Nations itself. Ambassador Khalilzad previously served as America’s Ambassador to both Afghanistan and Iraq.
One of the documents that I will be using during my conversation with Ambassador Khalilzad is this roster titled “Ten Lessons for Nation Building” that appeared in The National Interest several years ago.
