Audio from this event. Transnational Threats Project and Russia and Eurasia Program presented their latest report, "The Northern Distribution Network and the Modern Silk Road: Planning for Afghanistan's Future."
As the U.S. presence in Afghanistan increases, so too will its demand for non-lethal supplies. To accommodate this growth and address ongoing concerns with Pakistani supply lines, U.S. planners have opened the Northern Distrubtion Network (NDN), a commercially-based logistical corridor connecting Baltic and Black Sea ports with Afghanistan via Russia, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.ProgramsTopics
