Amb. Thomas Pickering in discussion with Joseph Cirincione, moderated by Mike Shuster, on the debate around Iran’s nuclear program.
ABOUT THE TALK
The debate around Iran’s nuclear program has shifted from hawkish calls for military action and increased sanctions to a new era of negotiations that many hope will lead to a comprehensive agreement within the year. The Iran Project, Ploughshares Fund and a broader community of experts and non-governmental organizations have been working to secure a negotiated settlement with Iran that would prevent them from getting a nuclear weapon. Ambassador Pickering, a core member of The Iran Project and Joe Cirincione, President of Ploughshares Fund will give an insider perspective on how we’ve reached this moment and what to watch as negotiations move forward. What will it take to reach a lasting agreement? What are the roadblocks and political problems that will be faced in both Tehran and Washington, DC? How will the agreement control Iran’s nuclear program and make it more transparent? What is the impact for the U.S. and the broader international community?
