On February 26, AGSIW will host a conversation with Ambassador Seyed Hossein Mousavian and Abdulaziz Al Sager.

February 26, 2021 10:00am – 11:00am EST

This event will be hosted virtually. Register to join the conversation and take part in the Q&A with the panelists via Zoom through your computer or by phone dial-in. You can also email info@agsiw.org or tag @GulfStatesInst on Twitter with your question.

In May 2019, Ambassador Seyed Hossein Mousavian, a former diplomat, and Abdulaziz Al Sager, chair of the Gulf Research Center, called for dialogue between the leaders of their respective countries, Iran and Saudi Arabia. With the arrival of a new administration in Washington, Mousavian and Sager have renewed their call for dialogue between the two countries that would lead to a regional modus vivendi.

Is a dialogue between Saudi and Iranian leaders possible? What fundamentals should guide a potential dialogue and what confidence-building measures will be required as part of a roadmap for direct discussions? What role should the Biden administration play in this process?

AGSIW is pleased to host a conversation with Ambassador Seyed Hossein Mousavian and Abdulaziz Al Sager to discuss their January 31 op-ed published by The Guardian. NPR’s Deborah Amos will moderate the discussion.
