Asia Society Texas Center presents Challenges and Opportunities Facing U.S.-Iran Relations
The U.S.-Iran relations has recently both been strengthened and come under scrutiny. A nuclear deal between Iran and Western powers has bolstered ties and after nearly four decades of trade sanctions, lessened trade restrictions have increased economic activity between the two powers. The new leadership in the White House has inherited the U.S.-Iranian relationship at a critical juncture and the decisions made by the new administration may shape the Middle East for decades to come.
Asia Society will hold a discussion on the current state of U.S.-Iran relations, prospects for U.S. dialogue with Iran on issues related to the broader Middle East, and what the future may hold for stability in the region.
