Ground Truth Briefing: A U.S.-Iranian Deal: Real Progress or the Key to an Empty Room?
In this Ground Truth Briefing, three veteran analysts of Iran, Israel and the U.S.-Iranian relationship assess the latest round of P5+1 negotiations in Geneva. Is an interim accord sustainable? Can end-game diplomacy on the nuclear issue succeed? And how will regional players, including Israel and Saudi Arabia, deal with the results achieved so far?
The Wilson Center series taps into the resources of former Center Scholars and Fellows who are on the ground in hot spots around the globe and can share their unique viewpoints. This on the record briefing was by invitation only.
