Technology never ceases to amaze me. Wikileaks aside, technology has opened up a whole new window into the world of diplomacy, and our own Ambassador to the US can be followed on Twitter and on video all over YouTube. When he Tweeted that he was going to be speaking at the James A Baker III Institute in Houston the other night and that it could be viewed on a webcast, the nerd in me got really excited. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, you can watch it below:
Ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani discusses the evolving relationship between Pakistan and the United States at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University in Houston Texas USA on 1 December 2010.
Ambassador Haqqani discusses the history of Pakistan-US relations and the present model of cooperation between the democratic governments of Pakistan and the US as they try to overcome historical suspicion and doubt.
Questions include topics Wikileaks, Asia Bibi, ISI, media, India, nuclear disarmament, and the positive contributions of the Pakistani-American community.
