Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 19:30 Debate This House would have no Diplomatic Relations with Iran

This House would have no Diplomatic Relations with Iran

Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 19:30

Debate

The Middle East has rarely been so unstable. While tensions have
escalated recently between Saudi Arabia and Iran, the West has
been trying to re-engage, re-establishing diplomatic relations
after the recent nuclear deal with Iran. Given Iran’s support
of President Assad, and continued inflammatory attitude to
both the US and Israel, the Union questions whether a policy of
reconciliation is the best one.
Cross Party Drinks will held in the bar after this debate.
