AIC Symposium on: The Obama Administration and US-Iran Relations & AIC Norouz Reception
The First Ever Norouz Reception Held on Capitol Hill

Administration faces given the many U.S. differences and commonalities with
Iran. We expect a vigorous debate from a diverse group of speakers and members
of the audience. AIC is also proud to present the first ever Norouz Reception

literally means a "new day." Although the relationship has many points of
difficulty, the possibility that a new day will come to US-Iran relations is
