Preventing a Nuclear-Armed Iran: Will Russia and China Really Help?

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

President Bush, Secretary of State Rice, and German Chancellor Merkel are among the many voices pointing out that a nuclear-armed Iran would be a threat to the democratic world. They, along with other democratic leaders, have insisted that the UN Security Council must discuss this issue and take action to prevent Iran from continuing efforts to establish a complete fuel cycle as a step toward nuclear weapons. But getting Iran on the docket at the Security Council and getting meaningful action from the Security Council will depend in large part upon what Russia and China do. Join us as our distinguished guests examine the multiple aspects of this growing crisis.
