Transatlantic Relations on Iran After the US Elections

calendarclock - (GMT)

This webinar discussed the prospects of enhancing US-European cooperation on Iran after the US presidential election.

Since the heralding of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed by the P5+1 group in 2015, the last four years have witnessed a schism emerge between the United States and Europe over Iran. While the E3 members have maintained their commitment to the deal throughout, the US has withdrawn from the JCPOA and adopted the maximum pressure campaign, a policy which resulted in being at odds with the European strategic interests on Iran.

The panel looked at the prospect for practical cooperation between the US and European partners following the US presidential election next month. It will explore what the potential outcomes of the US elections will mean for transatlantic alignment on the nuclear file and broader regional issues, providing the perspectives from the US, the EU, the UK and Iran.
