The Future of the Iran Deal


On Wednesday 27th September, the European Leadership Network (ELN) and Salamanca Group co-hosted the latest breakfast briefing part of the Strategic Insight series on “The Future of the Iran Deal”.

This special event allowed guests to tackle the issue of the Iran nuclear deal ahead of the Trump administration’s mid-October review. With credible reports that President Trump would like to find a way to justify declaring that Iran is no longer compliant with the deal there is a potential for a crisis in US-Europe relations, especially if the US were to resume sanctions. Sir Simon Gass, former British Ambassador to Iran and current Director General (Political) at the FCO, joined us to work through Europe’s potential reaction to a US withdrawal. Sir Adam Thomson KCMG, Director of the European Leadership Network (ELN), also discussed a forthcoming ELN Group Statement in defence of the Iran deal.
