World Affairs Council of Charlotte | Speaker Series with Suzanne DiMaggio and Gary Sick

March 8

The United States and Iran Under the Trump Administration

After several months of considerable uncertainty over the future of the Iran Nuclear Deal, the Trump Administration has tasked Congress to approve new laws within a few months that will revise the terms under which the U.S. will stay with the agreement and has also called on European allies to fix or amend the agreement. Many see the Iran nuclear deal as a multilateral negotiated agreement that cannot be renegotiated or revised by one nation unilaterally and that provides long-term assurances that Iran cannot acquire a nuclear weapon. Others consider that the nuclear deal is deeply flawed and that the constraints on Iran in the agreement will run out after less than a decade which will then make it possible for Iran to build a nuclear weapon quickly.

To address these complexities, experts Suzanne DiMaggio, Director and Fellow at New America and Dr. Gary Sick, Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University’s Middle East Institute will provide in-depth analysis and insight on what this agreement means to international diplomacy and global stability, and the consequences if the U.S. pulls out of the deal.

Our panelists are visiting in partnership with The Iran Project, an independent project which “seeks to support a balanced, objective, and bipartisan approach to preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon – one that enhances U.S. national security and that of our friends and allies in the region.”
