The U.S. and Iran: 'It's a very important moment'
Former ambassadors Eric Edelman and Steve Mull discuss the latest chapter in a long and fraught relationship
Former ambassadors Eric Edelman, a Miller Center senior fellow, and Steve Mull, UVA's vice provost for global affairs, agree that Iran has been waging a "sub-conventional" war against the United States for years. Now, the targeted killing of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani has created a new crisis. Will the change benefit the U.S. by increasing pressure on the Iranian regime? Or has the action created new risks and greater instability in the region? The two diplomats discussed these questions with the Miller Center's Todd Sechser.
