Capitol Hill Briefing: Iran's Nuclear Program 

FAS Briefing on Enhanced Safeguards for Iran's Nuclear Program

Iran’s controversial nuclear program has been front and center on the international stage for more than eight years. Despite negotiations between Iran and the West, no agreement has been reached regarding Iran's controversial uranium enrichment program.

Dr. Charles D. Ferguson, President of the Federation of American Scientists, and Dr. Ali Vaez, Director of the Iran Project, co-authored an FAS Special Report, which offers options for enhanced safeguards to ensure that the Iranian nuclear program remains peaceful. Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Vaez discussed elements of the Iranian nuclear program which would be acceptable for all sides involved in the debate (Iran, Russia, the United States and the International Atomic Energy Association), and what diplomatic initiatives should be undertaken to achieve a peaceful resolution to the nuclear crisis.
