Rising Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia: Geopolitical and Energy Security Implications

The latest increase in tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia raises questions about the potential for further instability in the region and possible oil supply disruptions. These risks are most apparent in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, home both to more than half of the nation’s oil production and a Shia majority. The panel discussion will focus on how these developments are impacting U.S. national and energy security interests at a time when Iran sanctions are being lifted, allowing Tehran to export its petroleum, further adding to an oversupplied global oil market.

The Heritage Foundation hosted an event on August 13  to analyze the state of sanctions following the nuclear agreement with Iran. 

The event, Assessing the Iran Nuclear Agreement: Placing Sanctions in Context, focuses on the remaining sanctions architecture of the U.S. and E.U., the possibility of 'snapback sanctions' if Iran violates the deal, and explores alternatives to the agreement moving forward.
