On November 4th, all previously waived U.S. sanctions against Iran under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will be reimposed, specifically those restricting sales of oil and petrochemical products from Iran, and nullifying contracts for US and European manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus, among many others. Join us for a talk with David Peyman, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Counter Threat Finance and Sanctions, who will discuss the U.S. foreign policy objectives towards Iran, and whether progress has been made between the Trump Administration and President Rouhani to find diplomatic solutions to resolve the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.
