WWAC announces this major talk at a decisive moment for our country as President Trump is getting ready to tell the world whether or not he will honor the agreement made by his predecessor with Iran and five other world powers and is also preparing for direct talks on denuclearization with North Korean leader Kim Jung-un.
The May 12 deadline is rapidly approaching when President Trump must decide whether to certify that Iran is in compliance with the nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers – the US, UK, Russia, France, China, and Germany. On the eve of this looming deadline, WWAC has invited Dr. Seyed Hossein Mousavian to speak to the Brattleboro-area community.Dr. Mousavian is an ex-diplomat from Iran who is currently a Middle East Security and Nuclear Policy Specialist at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. In his talk Professor Mousavian will assess the Iran nuclear deal and the lessons for US-Iran diplomacy that can be learned from it.
