GEORGIA ON MY MIND: HOW IRAN USES THE CAUCASUS TO EVADE SANCTIONS
With Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi
Sixth Installment in the MDSC "Members Teaching Members" Series
Thursday, November 20, 2014
7:15 pm - Lobby Gathering & Refreshments
7:30 pm - Program Begins
Proxies and agents, merchants and middlemen, peddlers and enablers of the Iranian regime have been scouring the globe for years to find ways to evade U.S. sanctions and help Iran acquire nuclear weapons. Georgia, a small post-soviet republic sandwiched between Russia to the north and Turkey to the south, located less than a thousand miles of driving distance to Tehran, has become a critical conduit for Iran's efforts to buy nuclear technology, finance its global operations, and beat the West in its quest for regional hegemony. Unless Western governments pay more attention, Iranian efforts to defy the international community and become a nuclear weapons state will succeed.
