The Israel Project invites you to join an important dialogue, “The Iran Deal: What’s at Stake? An In-depth Look at the Landscape After the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” featuring the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce (R-CA), and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY), Wednesday February 1, 2017 on Capitol Hill, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The landmark nuclear agreement reached by the P5+1 and Iran is increasingly controversial.  Our dialogue, taking place at the start of the 115th Congress, will examine the impact this agreement has had over the past year, discuss the options lawmakers have for responding to Iran’s actions, and explore what choices exist for further pressure on the Iranian regime.

Our panel includes:

Congressman Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee

Representing Southern California’s 39th District in the US House of Representatives, Chairman Royce is a leader in the global fight to advance human rights, free and fair elections, and solutions to promote security and economic growth.

Congressman Engel is the Ranking Member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, representing New York’s 16th Congressional District in the US House of Representatives. He also serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee including the Subcommittee on Health and the Subcommittee on Energy and Power.
