The Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund invites you to attend a lecture by Russian international relations expert and Americanist Maxim Suchkov “A Strategic Pause? Prospects of the U.S.-Iranian Confrontation in 2020”, which will take place in Moscow on January 15.

On January 8, Iran retaliated for the killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani by firing ballistic missiles at two Iraqi air bases housing U.S. forces. After that both parties decided to move to de-escalation and made announcements about their readiness for negotiations. Should these conflicts be considered as ended? Will the policy of both countries towards each other change? What should we expect in the future?
