So much attention is being devoted to the changing security situation in Afghanistan as US/NATO forces prepare to end the current mission and begin a new status in the country. Already, Afghanistan's immediate neighbors (and somewhat distant, such as Russia) are addressing what they see as the key concerns of the coming years.

Pessimists and optimists alike are looking to regional organizations as necessary in the coming years. Roger Kangas spoke about potential regional outcomes as the balance of security changes in the coming years.
