International donors are meeting in Kabul and they want answers on issues of corruption and security.

Afghanistan's leadership, however, is seeking commitment from the donor community to coordinate actions around President Karzai's priority agenda for the country.

On Monday's Riz Khan show we speak with Ashraf Ghani, the former Afghan finance minister and presidential candidate, about what it will take to turn the country around and how much longer Afghanistan can count on international support.   

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired from Monday, July 19, 2010.
