"A Final Deal with Iran: Filling the Gaps"

Event Report

By William H. Tobey, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

What would be the consequences if the interim deal became,†de facto, permanent?† Does the interim deal have gaps that would be fatal to any long-term arrangement?† What are the consequences if no deal is reached?† And, are such consequences better or worse than those resulting from an extension of the interim deal, or from a deal that fails to meet minimum acceptable standards? These questions, among others, were addressed at a private roundtable discussion hosted by the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control on April 25, 2014.
