The Future of the U.S.-Iran Relations [Panel Discussion @ Asia Society]

Our friends at the Asia Society offered limited seats to attend this panel discussion.


An excerpt of the event description from the hosts:

On the campaign trail, Donald Trump repeatedly denounced the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — the “Iran Deal” to dismantle that country’s nuclear program — and said he would withdraw from the agreement. Just days after the inauguration, Iran conducted missile tests, drawing a warning from President Trump that Iran “was playing with fire.” Relations between the two countries have remained contentious, and the escalation and potential for conflict are causes for concern. Against this backdrop, Iran held its presidential elections on May 19 and reelected President Hassan Rouhani.
