On Monday, March 26, Waheed Omer, Ambassador of Afghanistan in Italy, will hold a lecture on "Afghanistan as the Frontline against Terror and its Regional Dimensions". The objective of the meeting is to raise awareness on the current state of Afghanistan, beyond the generic reports produced by international media.

The lecture will address Afghanistan’s position in the fight against terrorism and the cultural and geopolitical dynamics underway in the country, including its relations with neighbouring states Pakistan, Iran and India. Moreover, the lecture will also analyse the country’s relations with the United States and other western countries, as well as the presence of the international community in Afghanistan in the framework of NATO and the United Nations.

The lecture will be opened by Sapienza Rector Eugenio Gaudio and the President of the Roma Sapienza Foundation, Antonello Folco Biagini.

The meeting will be held in English.
