Jamal Abdi spoke at the Coalition for Peace Action’s 35th. Annual Interfaith Service and Conference for Peace Held on November 9, 2014 at the Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, NJ.
Jamal spoke on many current topics of Iranian-American Interests including the upcoming Nuclear talks between US and Iran. He also answered several topical questions such as the nature of the negotians team, Global Climate Change and Senator Menendez. This speech comes in light of the change over in the US Congress after the mid-term elections and gives us insight as to what negotiated deals may be forthcoming and what may happen if the talks collapse.
