As President Trump weighs whether to recertify for a third time Iran’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the Atlantic Council’s Future of Iran Initiative invites you to two panel discussions on the views of Europe and Iran’s neighbors, respectively, toward the nuclear agreement.  While the US president and other critics of the JCPOA have been quick to focus on continuing areas of discord with Iran, primarily its regional military interventions, European and most Middle Eastern nations support continued compliance with the nuclear accord. The European Union has sought to bolster the JCPOA by deepening political and economic ties with the Islamic Republic while Iran’s Arab neighbors have adopted a more adversarial position. Panels will discuss the implications of changes in US policy toward Iran and whether Iran will continue to adhere to the JCPOA.  

The discussions will be held Sept. 25, 2017 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Atlantic Council. The event is open to the press and on the record.
