What are the implications of the Iranian presidential election on the U.S-Iranian relationship? When the next Iranian president takes office, can we expect him to change the course of its nuclear program and avoid a confrontation with the West? Will there be any shift toward greater freedoms for the Iranian people or will we see greater restrictions? Will the next president even matter, so long as the Supreme Leader is calling the shots? Join the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) for a conversation with RFE/RL's Golnaz Esfandiari, FDD's Reuel Marc Gerecht, Amb. John Limbert, and Ray Takeyh of the Council on Foreign Relations.
