In the wake of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, a Forsyth County man is leading a group of academics to the Islamic republic on a mission this week to help normalize relations between the U.S. and Iran. “Lack of trust between the two sides has isolated Iran and prevented meaningful progress on a range of issues important for Middle Eastern and world peace,” said James Jennings in a news release. “We aim to help begin the process of building bridges between U.S. and Iranian academics, as well as with Iranian officials as a way of restoring trust, which is basic to making agreements that stick.”
