Saudi-Iran Showdown: Robin Wright Explains It To NPR (Audio)

Journalist Says Iran-Saudi Showdown Comes At A ‘Really Dangerous’ Time

Robin Wright Interview – “Fresh Air” – NPR – Jan 7, 2016

Journalist Robin Wright, who has written about the Middle East since 1973, tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross that the conflict between the countries comes at an especially sensitive time. “The timing of this confrontation is really dangerous, because January was the month of important developments on four different peace initiatives that were really part of the international effort to prevent the Middle East from disintegrating completely,” Wright says.
