Amanpour is CNN International's flagship global affairs interview program hosted by Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour.
Today's show features part one of Christiane's world exclusive interview with Afghanistan's Interior Minister Sirajuddin Haqqani, head of the feared extremist Haqqani Network. The Taliban leader has never done an interview with his face showing and has never sat on camera with a western news organization -- certainly not with a female journalist. The US government says Haqqani has American blood on his hands and there’s a $10 million reward for information leading to his arrest. Yet top western officials point to Haqqani’s anti-terrorism measures in office and women working in his own ministry.
Also in today's show: Laurel Miller and Margot Wallström. Miller served as America’s acting special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan during the Obama and Trump administrations, while Sweden’s Wallström put feminism at the heart of her country’s foreign policy during her time as foreign minister. And, Walter Isaacson interviews David Gergen about the latter's new book, Hearts Touched With Fire: How Great Leaders Are Made.
