“Today we will address the issue of policy options towards Iran following the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.  As many of you are aware, in January of this year we conducted a similar session focusing on Iranian advances in the Arab world.  Let me mention up front that our focus today will be different.  We have asked our panelists to look at how, realistically, the Trump administration and our partners in the region can address those actions of Iran which they object to.”
Saudi Arabian – Turkish Rivalry in the Middle East

Capitol Hill Conference
“The topic for today’s program is an issue which we feel has gained quite a bit of prominence in the aftermath of the October 2nd murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. As information about Khashoggi’s fate emerged in the weeks following his death, a dynamic began to play out between Saudi Arabia and Turkey, and this dynamic suggests a kind of a rivalry between the two countries for influence in the Middle East. And I think it’s a dynamic that maybe has been under appreciated by those who follow events in the region, and so today we’ll have an opportunity to delve into that topic.”
