On October 26, I gave a talk at Princeton University titled Saudi Arabia and Iran: Building Understanding for Improved Ties. The talk was hosted by the Sharmin and Bijan Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies and the Institute for International and Regional Studies at Princeton University.
Princeton University: Dr. Banafsheh Keynoush, foreign policy advisor, explains the often misunderstood relations between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Islamic Republic of Iran. With current tensions often primarily attributed to religious differences, Dr. Keynoush contextualizes the role of religion, broader regional tensions, and ongoing foreign intervention on the two nations’ mutual relations throughout history. Presented as part of the 2016-17 Mossavar-Rahmani Center Seminar Series.
