The war in Afghanistan, nuclear tension with Iran and global efforts to combat terrorism are all on the agenda in what is expected to be a compelling discussion in Washington D.C..
"President Obama's participation at the United Nations last week only underlines the re-dedication of the United States to multilateralism in world affairs," said Amanpour.
"I'm looking forward to this chance to really dig deep into their plans for dealing with these global crises."
This special edition of Amanpour, where Christiane will be joined by Frank Sesno, Director of George Washington's School of Media and Public Affairs, will air on both CNN International and CNN/U.S. on Tuesday, 6 October at 15.00 ET/21.00 ET.
