Iran's Nuclear Defiance: International Dimensions

This video is temporarily unavailable.

Thirty one years after Iran’s 1979 revolution, the Islamist dictatorship in Tehran has been shaken by a determined opposition movement, but continues to pose substantial challenges to regional stability, the global nonproliferation regime and U.S. foreign policy. The Obama Administration has responded with a dual track policy of engagement and international sanctions that appears to be making little progress on either track. How should U.S. Iran policy be modified to best advance U.S. interests in the Middle East? How much cooperation can Washington expect from Russia, China and European countries in ratcheting up international pressure on Tehran to halt its nuclear weapons efforts, end its support of terrorism, and respect the human rights of the Iranian people?
