Restarting nuclear talks with Iran: Old problems, some new hopes

Article Highlights

  • Although details of the Iranian nuclear negotiations are scarce, Tehran seems to be taking the tightening of sanctions – especially a possible boycott of Iranian oil — seriously.
  • To reduce world suspicions of its intent, Iran needs to make concessions on its uranium enrichment practices and quietly provide real but unpublicized assurances that any weapons research program is history.
  • To provide Iran political cover, world powers should consider accepting Tehran’s claims that its nuclear program is peaceful, integrating the program into the global nuclear economy, and undercutting Tehran’s attempts to retain nuclear autonomy.


Después de un paréntesis de 15 meses, Irán y los miembros permanentes del Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidas, más Alemania, denominado P5 +1, se reunieron en Estambul para discutir el programa nuclear de Irán. Las relaciones entre Irán y las grandes potencias se han vuelto tan amargas que, cuando terminaron las reuniones, todos los lados vieron el acuerdo para reunirse nuevamente el próximo mes en Bagdad como un triunfo diplomático importante.
