Iran’s support for the Assad regime goes well beyond loyalty to a traditional ally. François Picard’s panel looks at the spillover effect of the power play over Tehran’s nuclear program and argues over whether to send its leaders an invitation to Syria negotiations.

  • Haytham MANAA, President, Syrian National Committee for Democratic Change
  • Ramin PARHAM, Iranian dissident, Co-author of "L'Histoire secrète de la Révolution iranienne" (with Michel Taubman) Denoël, 2009
  • Meir JAVENDENFAR, Iranian Politics Lecturer at IDC Herzliya (from Tel Aviv)
  • Robert ZARATE, Policy Director, Foreign policy Initiative (from Washington DC)
