Russia-Iran Relations: Agreements and Disagreements

Sept. 18, 2019, 9:00-10:30 am (registration required)
2nd Floor C, Center for Strategic & International Studies, 1616 Rhode Island Ave. NW, Washington, DC

Join the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) for a talk with Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, on agreements and disagreements in Russian-Iranian relations. 

At a June 2019 Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit, when Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, he remarked that the relations between the two countries were “multifaceted” and “multilateral.” The two countries have continued developing their ties despite tightened sanctions. What are the main economic and political drivers of Russia-Iran cooperation? Are there any irreconcilable differences between the two and where does Iran fit in U.S.-Russia relations?
