Available Expert - Trump threatens Iran’s leader, raising tensions between Washington and Tehran

Monday, July 23, 2018

Queen’s University expert on the Middle East Houchang Hassan-Yari is available to comment on the escalating tensions between the Trump administration and Iran.

"Deterioration in US-Iran relations since the former exit from the nuclear agreement has resulted in a language war between the Trump administration and the Islamic Republic of Iran leadership,” says Dr. Hassan-Yari. “Can we expect a new military crisis in the Middle East?"

Please note: Dr. Hassan-Yari (who speaks French, English and Farsi) wants to be identified in the media as an expert on the Middle East from Queen’s University and Royal Military College.
