Virtual Event | From Fist Bumps to Missile Fire: One Month since President Biden's Middle East Trip

The event will air publicly on this page on Wednesday, August 17, at 10:00 a.m. ET.

One month has passed since President Joe Biden’s trip to the Middle East. In that time, the United States and its negotiating partners met in Vienna for another inconclusive round of nuclear negotiations with Iran. Intensive fighting between Israel and a terrorist group in Gaza started and finished. Iran reportedly began training Russian forces on the use of drones in Ukraine, and the US recently charged a member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps with attempting to assassinate former US National Security Advisor John Bolton and Hudson Distinguished Fellow and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Please join Hudson Institute for a discussion that will take a closer look at what has changed and what has stayed the same in the Middle East since the president’s visits to Israel and Saudi Arabia. Panelists include Senior Fellow Michael Doran, Senior Fellow Jonathan Schachter, Adjunct Fellow Robert Greenway, and Foundation for Defense of Democracies Research Fellow Andrea Stricker.
