Jackson School Director and Professor Reşat Kasaba recently shared his views in an interview with KUOW radio about Trump’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear agreement. He stated that Iran was not in breach of the international agreement and expressed concern that a move away from the treaty will further isolate the United States, strengthen the hand of more conservative groups in Iran, and may pave the way for the re-start of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Local companies like Boeing who have been involved in preliminary deals with Iran may also be affected, Kasaba noted, depending on the nature of the sanctions.
