KGNU – Hemispheres – Middle East Dialogues – Tuesday, August 30, 2022 @ 6 – 7 pm, mst. The Middle East Caught between a unipolar and multipolar world. With Ibrahim Kazerooni and Rob Prince., hosted by Jim Nelson

The Middle East is caught between the old unipolar global political model in which Washington “calls all the shots” and the emerging multipolar realities in which, while still an important factor in the region, Washington’s influence is waning and that of China, Russia and Iran somewhat strengthening. The classic example of this fluid reality is Turkey, a NATO member on the one hand but becoming more economically and politically integrated with China and Russia on the other. Then there is never ending drama – approaching soap opera proportions of the fate of the JCPOA (Iran Nuclear Deal). Is it dead? Has it been resurrected? Is Iran moving in the direction of the “North Korean option?”. Is there new momentum for peace in Syria? All that and more – KGNU – Hemispheres – Middle East Dialogues, the news from the Middle East you won’t get from the NY Times or CNN.
