Event Documents


Dr Seyed Hossein Mousavian, Senior Nuclear Negotiator for Iran (2003–5)
Dr Patricia Lewis, Research Director, International Security, Chatham House
Chair: Sir Richard Dalton, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House


As nuclear negotiations resume between Iran and the six-nation group of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the US, the speaker will examine the strategies of the parties to the talks and suggest ways forward. He will offer thoughts on whether both sides can move beyond past positions and reach agreement. The event will also consider how sanctions are affecting the Iranian economy and whether speculation about war with Iran may reappear in 2013 if there is no progress on the substance of the dispute.
