The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Choate Room
1779 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.
The recent election of Hassan Rouhani as president of Iran provides a new and important opening for the United States and its P5+1 partners to secure an agreement that limits Iran's nuclear capabilities in exchange for easing tough international sanctions.
As Iran continues to improve its nuclear capabilities in the coming months and sanctions continue to undermine Iran's economy, it is in the interest of all sides to revise earlier diplomatic proposals and to seize the opportunity to achieve progress in the next round of talks, which are expected to resume in September.
Join the Arms Control Association (ACA) and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace for an assessment of Iran's nuclear capabilities and the elements required for a deal that could provide both sides with a "win-win" outcome.
- Dr. Colin Kahl, Senior Fellow; The Center for a New American Security;
- George Perkovich, Director, Nuclear Policy Program, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace;
- David Albright, founder and President of the Institute for Science and International Security;
- Daryl Kimball, Executive Director, Arms Control Association (moderator).
Please RSVP online.
Digital copies of the newly updated edition of ACA's 44-page briefing book on "Solving the Iranian Nuclear Puzzle" will be available at the event.
