Since the United States withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal (aka the JCPOA), tensions have been rising in the Gulf region. Currently there is an atmosphere of escalation as Iranian-supported militias increase their operations against both the UAE and Saudi Arabia, including attacks on the oil trade and the United States deploys additional military forces to the region. For its part, the European Union remains supportive of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (re: JCPOA) with Iran, in partnership with China and Russia, but at odds with Tehran over its support for militias across the region.
Against this background, the Euro-Gulf Information Centre (EGIC) organised next high-level talk centred on the decline of the JCPOA and the future geopolitical implications.
To address this crucial issues, the EGIC invited: Dr. Giulio Terzi di Sant’Agata, one of Italy’s most experienced diplomats and former Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs; Dr. Gerald Steinberg, President of the NGO Monitor
