Overview

Two months after the signing of the interim agreement in Geneva between Iran and the P5 + 1 countries, the speakers share insights into whether a permanent settlement can be reached, and how. They examine the approach the US will adopt in future negotiations, and assess whether the deal could herald a new era in Iran-US relations. They also discuss the deal’s regional ramifications, focusing on Saudi Arabia and Israel, who have emerged as critical voices.
