EMF Conference Part 8: What would be Necessary to Rethink the Iran P5+1 Agreement?
Dr. Yair Hirschfeld – Vice Chair of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Strategic Dialogue

The newly elected US president has expressed his dissatisfaction with the Iran P5+1 agreement and signalled his willingness to renegotiate it. Dr Hirschfeld discusses possible options for curtailing Iran’s hegemonic ambitions in the region, which will most probably be reinforced by the deal in its current shape. One of the options includes closer cooperation between Israel and the Sunni Arab states, potentially leading to the solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as support for the Kurds in Syria.
