On 7 October 2001, the United States launched Operation Enduring Freedom, a campaign that began the invasion of Afghanistan. That day marked the start of a war that did not come to an end until 31 August 2021, almost 20 years later, with the Taliban regaining power.

Many questions are now on the table: Why was the United States unable to build a strong state with an effective political apparatus for 20 years? What does the future now hold for the country? Who do the Taliban trust? And perhaps the most important question for many of all:

What on earth is going on with China? What role will it play in the construction of this new Afghanistan?

In this video, the third part of our special trilogy on Afghanistan, we answer all these questions.
