The panelists will reflect on the implications of a deal or no deal scenario or where the negotiations are further extended. They will also assess how the outcome of these nuclear talks may influence Iran's regional role and the prospects for functional cooperation between Iran and the West on regional conflicts. We are delighted to host in London Dr Hossein Mousavian, a former member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team with intricate knowledge of the negotiations to assess the aftermath of what could be the most important rounds of talks to date.
ECFR Policy Fellow Ellie Geranmayeh, will also join us from having attended the nuclear talks in Vienna and will provide a briefing on the details of the negotiations as they stand and offer insights into what the outcome means for the future of Europe’s relationship with Iran on non-nuclear related issues.
