Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith, reporting live from the Tajrabawi high school in Herat province, asks Ali Ahmed Kaweh, literature professor at Herat University, whether the people of Herat think recent advances in Afghanistan will be sustainable beyond an international troop withdrawal in 2014.

Kaweh says the status of the gains made over the last 11 years, including in the education of and rights of women, will depend on whether the nations pulling out their troops will continue to support Afghanistan economically and politically.
