Asia Foundation Hosts Ambassador Teresita C. Schaffer to Speak on U.S.-Pakistan Relations
September 21, 2011
On Monday, September 26, The Asia Foundation will host preeminent South Asia expert, former U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka, and former deputy assistant secretary of state for South Asian affairs, Teresita C. Schaffer, for a conversation on the topic of her new book, How Pakistan Negotiates with the United States: Riding the Roller Coaster, at the Foundation’s headquarters in San Francisco. Ambassador Schaffer will reflect on the themes and styles that have characterized Pakistani negotiations with American civilian and military officials in recent times, both during the high points of close cooperation and the low points of deep bilateral estrangement. She will also explore the backlash and increased stress and volatility in the U.S.-Pakistan relationship since the capture of Osama bin Laden.
