While the dust is still settling from the recent killing of Qassem Suleimani and the fallout for Washington’s approach to Iran and the Middle East, the development also holds significance for the wider Indo-Pacific region as well as the Trump administration’s approach to it in the face of its focus on great power competition focused on China and Russia.
In this talk, Prashanth Parameswaran, Senior Editor at The Diplomat and fellow at the Wilson Center, will explore the implications of the recent development and rising U.S.-Iran relations for key regional countries and for Washington‘s evolving foreign policy approach. The talk will also touch on what we might expect for the rest of 2020 and beyond in a U.S. presidential year and aspects of continuity and change in some regional flashpoints.
Light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
