The controversial 2015 Iran nuclear deal broke a persistent stalemate in negotiations, bringing the U.S. and Iran into agreement on a plan to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons. What impact will President Tump’s recent decision to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement have?

Join the conversation with author and Middle East foreign policy expert, Trita Parsi, as he shares his perspective on the Iran nuclear deal, which he argues would enhance U.S. national security by helping to stabilize the Middle East and bolster the moderates in Iran.

Following the program, Parsi will sign copies of his book Losing an Enemy – Obama, Iran, and the Triumph of Diplomacy, which can be purchased through AmazonBarnes & Noble, or IndieBound, and will be available for purchase at the event through Magers & Quinn Booksellers.

Presented by Global Minnesota in partnership with Hennepin County Library.
