IPD-GCSP Panel Discussion: Prospects for Iran Nuclear Talks
After months of stalled negotiations aimed at reviving the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA), the Raisi administration has finally agreed to resume nuclear talks with six world powers in Vienna from 29 November 2021. The Islamic Republic, emboldened by the defeat of Trump’s “maximum pressure campaign” and its own responses in the form of major nuclear advances, is now expected to use its hard-earned leverage to bargain on sanctions relief, release of frozen assets, and guarantees for Washington’s full compliance with the pact.
Meanwhile, the US position remains unclear on the guarantees it could provide for the nuclear agreement. However, the US did release a joint statement with Germany, France, and the UK on the sidelines of the G20 in Rome, indicating that Washington is ready to return and stay in full compliance with the deal as long as Tehran does the same.
With Iran-US posturing set to take further shape in the 7th round of the Vienna talks, the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy (IPD) is pleased to co-host a timely panel discussion titled on “Prospect of Iran Nuclear Talks” in collaboration with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) to examine the potential scenarios facing the negotiators to salvage the nuclear deal.
