The East West Institute in Brussels hosted a roundtable discussion on “The JCPOA Crisis and Heightened Tensions between Iran and the United States” to look into the recent tensions in the Gulf region and its consequences. Speaking as part of the program, Julia Gurol from the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient (CARPO) presented a recently published policy report on EU-China cooperation in terms of revising the nuclear accord. CARPO’s CEO Adnan Tabatabai discussed inner-Iranian dynamics providing insights into the rationale behind Tehran’s recent moves while Albert Grech from the Iran Task Force of the European External Action Service (EEAS) provided the perspective of the European Union. The event was moderated by the East-West Institute’s Vice President for the Middle East and North Africa Kawa Hassan.
