Unmute Yourself: Iran
Join us for a virtual happy hour featuring former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes in conversation with fellow member of the Ploughshares Fund Board of Directors, Amb. Pam Hamamoto.
The previous administration unilaterally withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and Iran later responded by enriching uranium above the levels allowable in the deal. For more than a year Ploughshares Fund has been working diligently behind the scenes, consulting with the Biden Administration as it works to salvage what precious nuclear break out time is still possible.
Our goal is to assist Biden in keeping his campaign promise to re-enter the JCPOA. But talks are stalled.
Ben and Pam will discuss the state of the deal now, at a time when nuclear weapons are exponentially complicating an already devastating conflict in Ukraine, and beyond.
