Afghanistan - Fighting for Peace
First broadcast November 2006

Afghanistan, fighting for peace

In December 2001, Afghan leaders and the international community agreed a new deal for a post-Taleban controlled Afghanistan.

This deal was meant to ensure that the country would not be abandoned again. In this series, Lyse Doucet asks if that promise was kept.

Part Two - Moving forward

Do Afghans still have the backing and the will to carry on building an independent and peaceful Afghanistan as envisaged in the Bonn deal?

Does its status as the world's biggest producer of opium poppies and the third poorest nation mean it is destined to remain hostile to powerful commanders?

Is the international community pulling together to move this country forward or do their competing interests and programmes also compound Afghanistan's slow progress?

Lyse Doucet investigates in the second part of this series and asks ordinary Afghans if they believe their country is on the right track.
