Peter Ford investigates the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and UK response
I speak to Peter Ford, former UK Ambassador to Bahrain and Syria, about the emerging geopolitical alliances in Afghanistan and how they will impact upon Syria and the region after the dust has settled on the theatre that is US withdrawal.
