The organizers cancelled the 9:45-11:05 a.m. session, and replaced it with a series of separate statements, with Zarif now set to speak an hour before Liberman, and another panel discussion in between them, leaving no likelihood of the two men encountering each other.

Liberman and Zarif were set to be two of four participants in a session entitled “Old Crises, New Middle East?,” which was to have been moderated by the BBC’s chief international correspondent Lyse Doucet.
