Rep. Ros-Lehtinen to Headline UANI and FPI Event on Future of Iran Policy
Sen. Lieberman, Key Iran Experts Will Join Panel
Washington, D.C. - With Congress voting to extend the Iran Sanctions Act and the incoming Trump Administration signaling a harder line on Tehran, 2017 is shaping up to be a pivotal year in U.S.-Iranian relations.
What might the next Congress do to hold Iran accountable for its threatening activities? Will the Trump Administration seek to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement? How will Tehran respond to the new order in Washington? What factors should responsible companies consider when mulling potential projects in Iran?
To answer these questions and more, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) and the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) will co-host a public briefing on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. ET on Capitol Hill, followed by a lunch reception.
