Lecture: Responding to a New Iranian Leader Past

Tuesday, Sept 24, 2013 ,
7:00 PM
- San Francisco, CA, United States

With the election of a new, moderate president, questions remain over the future of Iran's foreign policy and the country's nuclear intentions. While President Rohani campaigned on a reformist platform, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Kahmenei has directed national security and foreign policy decisions in the past and there is no indication this might change. Whoever holds the reigns, the relationship between Iran and the US is complicated, with questions centering on how the US should respond to Iran's nuclear program. Are the current sanctions effective? Should the US consider a military option?

Kenneth Pollack, a former CIA analyst, will explore Iran's nuclear capabilities, the complex US-Iranian relationship and potential options for US policymakers.

Speaker:
Kenneth Pollack, Senior Fellow, Saban Center for Middle East Policy, Brookings Institution
