Discussing the Middle East

By Nikhil Sinh-Smith, 6.2
The Middle East Society was started to provide a channel for dialogue and discussion on one of the world’s most constantly evolving, relevant, and topical regions. In our meeting this week, the topic of the Iranian nuclear issue was discussed, with an emphasis on the possible implications Iran’s policy could have if furthered, as well as examining the EU’s newly emplaced sanctions on Iran and debating their effectiveness. We also looked at any updates on the situation in Syria, the topic covered at our previous meeting. The society is currently in dialogue with Sir Dominic Asquith, the British ambassador to Libya, with an eye to welcoming him as a guest speaker for a future meeting.
