    US State Department: US policy on Iran

    Asia House is hosting a private, off the record roundtable on US policy on Iran with the US Department of State.

    In 2018 President Trump decided the US would withdraw from the Iran Nuclear agreement (JCPOA), breaking away from its European allies and re-imposing sanctions. Other members of P5 + 1 still stand by the deal and continue to honour their commitments, having expressed ‘regret and concern’ over President Trump’s decision. 

    To help Corporate Members understand the US’s current position, Asia House will be welcoming Daniel Kimmage, Acting Coordinator, Global Engagement Centre at the Department of State, to share exclusive insights into the Trump Administration’s policy on Iran as well as US-UK cooperation and how it can be strengthened. Mr Kimmage leads efforts to coordinate and synchronise US government communications efforts to counter terrorist recruitment and state-sponsored propaganda and disinformation. He began serving in this capacity on 20 January 2017.

    Before assuming this role, he served in a number of State Department positions, including covering counterterrorism issues for the Office of Policy Planning and as the Principal Deputy Coordinator of the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications.

    This lunchtime briefing is held exclusively for Asia House Corporate Members. For more information, please contact aini.abdullah@asiahouse.co.uk
