This event is now full and registration has closed.


Following Donald Trump’s recent visit to the region, Joe Lieberman will discuss the direction of US foreign policy in the Middle East.  

In his capacity as chairman of global advocacy organization United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), he will focus in particular on Iran, outlining why he is skeptical about the Iran nuclear deal and the prospects of foreign companies trying to do business in the country as sanctions are relaxed. 

What affect might the Trump administration seek to have on both the future of the Iran nuclear deal and the wider geopolitics at play in the region? And how can the US best react following the recent diplomatic actions taken against Qatar by a number of other GCC countries? 

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule

This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House.
