The Atlantic Council's Future of Iran Initiative invites you to a discussion entitled, "Great Rifts: Political and Economic Ramifications of the Iran-Saudi Divide" on Tuesday, February 9.
More than a month after the Saudi execution of a prominent Shi'ite leader and Iranian despoiling of the Saudi embassy, the rift between the two major Middle Eastern powers continues to roil regional diplomacy. The strife between the two countries has the potential to transform into a full blown conflict, with ramifications on the proposed peace process in Syria and global energy markets. Join us for a discussion about the impact of this dangerous divide on shifting economic and political trends in the region.
