On the latest episode of EMBARGOED!, Brian and Tim are joined by special guests Sue Millar (Stephenson Harwood) and Tom Stocker (Pinsent Masons) to dive deep on what’s happening in the U.K. now that Brexit is (sort of) behind us. Topics include U.K. sanctions and export controls policy, the future of U.K.-U.S. and U.K.-EU trade relations, possible new U.K. approaches to Iran, China, and Russia, and the rise of OFSI as a sanctions enforcer to be reckoned with. Then, in the Lightning Round, we quickly touch on the new Burma sanctions program, a full U.S. reversal on Yemen, and the (possible) death knell for the TikTok and WeChat EOs.
