Trita Parsi, ‘Why Diplomacy Succeeded with Iran,’ Lecture and Book Signing
October 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Iran Nuclear deal prevented both a war with Iran and an Iranian nuclear weapons option. The road to this historic achievement was long and arduous. Today, the current administration has threatened to kill the deal, bringing the U.S. and Iran once again to the brink of war. Trita Parsi, who advised the Obama administration on the talks, tells the story of how diplomacy succeeded in his new book – as well as what is at stake if the administration kills the deal. This talk will be followed by a book signing featuring Parsi’s new book, Losing an Enemy: Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy from 7:40 to 8 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the Center for the Study of the Middle East and Muslim Civilizations.
