2/26/18: Frank Wisner, Career Ambassador, US Foreign Service
The Trump Administration has tasked Congress to revise legislation dealing with the Iran nuclear agreement and has also called on European allies to amend the deal. Can compromises between the parties be reached within the short deadline in order to keep the U.SS. committed to the deal? Is there a better way to achieve America’s objectives to contain Iran without walking away from the agreement?
