Emile Simpson rips apart a crab and discusses the future of Afghanistan

The Financial Times interviewed Emile Simpson about Afghanistan over a crab lunch.


The Financial Times took our own Emile Simpson to lunch and an interview. Sample quotation: “As he rips a claw off his crab, Simpson says he doesn’t foresee a dramatic collapse of the Kabul regime.”
