Trump’s Iran Policy: One Year From Nuclear Deal Withdrawal
It's been nearly one year since President Trump withdrew from the JCPOA and re-imposed sanctions in violation of U.S. commitments under the Iran nuclear deal. The Iranian economy has since been under severe stress, with rampant inflation and unemployment exacerbated by horrific flooding that has devastated vast areas of the country. How is Iran responding to Trump’s “maximum pressure” campaign? Could new sanctions break Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal or threaten the stability of the regime? And, could a successor administration return the U.S. to compliance with the nuclear accord?
Join us on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM in Rayburn 2044 for an expert briefing on these topics featuring Jamal Abdi, President of the National Iranian American Council; Suzanne DiMaggio, Senior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Ned Price, Director of Policy and Communications at National Security Action, and will be moderated by Asieh Namdar, journalist and anchor at CGTN America.
We'll also be streaming this event live on Facebook, Periscope, and Youtube. Follow along with the action (and join the conversation) by using #NIAContheHill on Twitter!
