"Addressing the Military Dimensions of Iran’s Nuclear Program"

Op-Ed, Institute for Science and International Security

By Olli Heinonen, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, David Albright and Andrea Stricker

While Iran continues to keep the pressure on to weaken the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA’s) effort to get to the bottom of the well-founded allegations that it had a nuclear weapons program, the Obama administration is giving the impression that it is softening its position on this critical issue. The administration should publicly state that the results of the IAEA’s investigation are critical and are linked to sanctions relief.

"In Response to Recent Questionable Claims about North Korea’s Indigenous Production of Centrifuges"

Op-Ed, India & Global Affairs

By David Albright and Olli Heinonen, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

After reading the summary paper presented at a conference in Seoul on September 25, 2013, “New insights into North Korea’s gas centrifuge enrichment program” by Joshua Pollack, with the aid of R. Scott Kemp, we remain unconvinced about its central conclusions.  In particular, we disagree with several that have been widely reported in the media, such as that policies based on export controls, sanctions and interdiction “won’t get much traction” and a verifiable denuclearization deal may be “out of reach.”1  We have identified several problems from the summary of the forthcoming analysis which would undermine those as well as other conclusions they draw.

"Provisions to Limit Future Iranian Illicit Procurements for Its Nuclear Programs"

Paper

By Olli Heinonen, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and David Albright

This proliferation-sensitive procurement architecture should remain in place for the duration of the comprehensive agreement. The six powers must carefully plan for eventualities now and design and implement an architecture that prevents future Iranian illicit procurements under a comprehensive agreement.

"A New Approach to Resolve Military Aspects of Iran’s Nuclear Program"

Op-Ed

By Olli Heinonen, Senior Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and David Albright

In a recent appearance in Washington, DC, the IAEA’s Director General Yukiya Amano repeatedly emphasized that the military nuclear issues need to be addressed and solved. It is time for the IAEA to chart a new course before its lack of progress in resolving this issue collides with the effort by the world’s powers and Iran to achieve a nuclear deal by November 24. The IAEA, with the support of the United States, must act quickly.
