Briefing on Options for Negotiators; New Report Released
June 26, 2014
10:00am -12:00 noon
Location: The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Choate Room
1779 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.
Negotiators from the United States, other world powers, and Iran have a month before their July 20 target date to conclude a historic, multi-year agreement to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program is exclusively peaceful.
The two sides must find ways to address several complex issues. In recent weeks, they have made progress, but significant gaps remain on a few key issues.
The Arms Control Association will present the key findings of a new staff report that explains the key issues and outlines options available to the negotiators that could help secure a "win-win" outcome.
The briefing will address options for extending “breakout” time and improving the ability to detect and disrupt any such effort. Options for resolving the difficult challenge of defining Iran’s uranium enrichment capacity and reducing the plutonium output of Iran’s Arak reactor will also be explained.
Copies of the newly updated edition of ACA's 64-page briefing book, Solving the Iranian Nuclear Puzzle, will be available at the event.
