Mark Katz: Trump Has Not Brought Anything to Make Middle East Deal More Likely

Valdai International Discussion Club

Visiting Senior Fellow at the Institute Mark N. Katz was interviewed by Valdai International Discussion Club (12.5.). According to Katz, it is not yet clear if the Trump administration prioritizes fighting Iran or al-Qaeda, as there are many other actors, which figures in the administration consider chief threats. Katz ascribed this to Trump's lack of experience in international affairs, which may take time to resolve. (Valdai International Discussion Club, 12.5.)
