    Why Iran Nuclear Talks Failed To Meet Deadline
    Karim Sadjadpour July 22, 2014 NPR’s Here and Now

    There was a fundamental mismatch of expectations between the United States and Iran over what a comprehensive deal would entail when the interim nuclear deal was reached in November 2013.

    Iran Negotiations
    George Perkovich February 20, 2014 Council on Foreign Relations

    When Tehran agreed in November to the interim deal and the U.S. Senate moved to increase sanctions, it reinforced the idea in Iran that no matter they do, good or bad behavior, the same answer comes out of the United States.

    Negotiating With Iran: A Matter of Trust
    James M. Acton February 18, 2014 Bloomberg TV

    Reaching a final agreement with Iran over its nuclear program is going to require some very hard compromises from hardliners both in Tehran and in Washington.

    Iran To Take First Step Toward Long-Term Deal
    Karim Sadjadpour January 19, 2014 NPR’s All Things Considered

    There is a mismatch of expectations between America and Iran in terms of what a comprehensive deal should look like. The United States expects Iran to drive its nuclear program further in reverse, while Iran expects America to lift all of the sanctions.

    Does Nuclear Deal With Iran Go Far Enough?
    Karim Sadjadpour November 25, 2013 NPR’s Morning Edition

    Under the new nuclear deal, the broad sanctions architecture remains. Iran’s oil industry is still under sanctions, and if indeed Iran wants to emerge from that isolation, it’s going to require some consistent nuclear compromise.

    While the Iran nuclear deal offers a potential nuclear détente, the United States and Iran are not on the verge of a rapprochement just yet.

    Is the Iran Deal Scientifically Possible?

    What Does Russia Really Want in Iran?
    Petr Topychkanov December 19, 2014

    Russian participation in the nuclear talks has demonstrated that despite the depth of the Ukrainian crisis and all the existing conflicts between Russia and the West, there are no reasons to consider Russia a purely destructive force that is bent on harming the West.

    Amano’s Move on Marivan

    Questions raised by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano about what he calls “possible military dimensions” of Iran’s nuclear program are standing tall between the negotiators and a comprehensive settlement of the crisis.

    Lessons from Vienna
    Nikolay Kozhanov December 12, 2014

    The experience gained in Vienna may be useful in future talks. In order to make the further negotiations effective, both Obama and Rouhani need to find a way to achieve a consensus of support for their actions within their own political establishments.

    The Outcome of the Iran Talks and the Next Steps
    George Perkovich, Karim Sadjadpour, Daryl Kimball, Elizabeth Rosenberg, Kelsey Davenport December 3, 2014 Washington, DC

    Negotiators from the P5+1 and Iran have agreed to extend the talks on Iran’s nuclear program to June 2015. Many issues are still to be solved, such as establishing a formula for verifiably limiting Iran’s uranium enrichment capacity as well as an acceptable process for relieving sanctions. Still, all parties to the talks have stressed the need to reach a comprehensive agreement.

    Russia, Iran, and the Nuclear Negotiations in Vienna
    Nikolay Kozhanov November 27, 2014

    An agreement between Iran and the P5+1 will not deal a significant blow to Moscow’s relationship with Tehran. While the nuclear issue remains the most important aspect of Western relations with Tehran, the Russian-Iranian agenda is much broader.
