National Leadership Webinar with:

The Honorable Elliott Abrams
Former U.S. Special Representative for Iran and Venezuela, Department of State

Deterrence and Diplomacy with Iran

While President Biden has sought to engage Iran in nuclear diplomacy, with the goal of reentering the JCPOA, Iran has so far refused talks with the United States. Instead, Iranian-backed militias have repeatedly launched rockets at U.S. forces in Iraq. Join JINSA for a discussion with Hon. Elliott Abrams, former Special Representative for Iran and JINSA President & CEO Dr. Michael Makovsky, on how the U.S. can deter further Iranian attacks and how it should approach diplomacy with Tehran.

Monday, March 15
3:00pm EDT
