Featuring former U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski
2013 will be the critical year to resolve the Iranian nuclear standoff. With sanctions escalating, Iranian nuclear capabilities increasing, a soft war simmering and warnings of full blown military conflict on the horizon, it has never been more vital that the United States and Iran find a diplomatic off ramp to prevent disaster.
There are strong indications that new negotiations will commence in the closing weeks of 2012. With the U.S. Presidential Election behind us, and a brief window before Iran enters its own election season, it will be essential that the parties effectively utilize diplomacy to get on course to prevent war and prevent a nuclear-armed Iran. But the critical questions remain unanswered: how do the parties finally make diplomacy work? What does an agreement look like? And what is the best path the parties must take to get there?
To help answer these questions, the Arms Control Association and the National Iranian American Council invite you to "Iran 2013: Making Diplomacy Work," a joint-conference featuring expert speakers and panelists including former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski; former head of the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq Rolf Ekeus; and additional distinguished guests to be announced. Join us as top former officials, experts, and policymakers evaluate the state of the diplomatic option and present their recommendations for how to resolve this pressing challenge before it is too late.
