I Am Steve Chao, Al Jazeera correspondent in Kabul who just got back from Helmand Province in Afghanistan. Ask me anything!
Steve Chao will be along shortly to answer questions!
Steve Chao was in Helmand province with Afghan soldiers who are preparing to take charge of security as part of the 2014 pullout plan, where US forces are starting to hand over bases in the volatile regions of southern Afghanistan.
He is an award-winning correspondent who's reported around the world, covering such events such as the war in Afghanistan, the terror attacks in Mumbai, and the Tibetan uprisings in China.
Most recently he was in Japan for the tsunami disaster, and on the high seas around the Diaoyutai/Senkaku islands for the East China Sea dispute. Before his post as the Senior Asia Correspondent for Al Jazeera, Chao was an international correspondent for CTV.
Edit: Steve is here answering questions. Reddit is tweaking out a bit though.
** APOLOGIES ALL. IT'S ONE A-M HERE IN KABUL, AND I'M GOING TO HAVE TO GET A FEW HOURS OF ZZZ'S BEFORE JUMPING ON A PLANE FOR ANOTHER EMBED. I'VE TRULY ENJOYED THIS SESSION AND WILL TRY TO ANSWER SOME MORE QUESTIONS WHEN I GET UP. ALL THE BEST! STEVE
