UANI Announces 2017 Iran Summit Schedule

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) will host a distinguished lineup of current and former foreign leaders, lawmakers, and Iran experts at its second annual Iran Summit, a public event to be held on Tuesday, September 19 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York.

The day-long event of interviews and discussions will examine the political and economic environment since the signing of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran -- with particular focus on Iran's role in the region, its relationship with North Korea, and the future of Iran policy in the Trump administration.

Comprised of former diplomats and lawmakers, UANI is spearheading a global education campaign focused on the risks of doing business with Iran, warning hundreds of international companies that may be contemplating Tehran as a new investment opportunity.
