About This Event

During the last four years, the Obama administration and its international partners have used both diplomatic engagement and U.N. sanctions to press the Iranian government to address the international community’s concerns over its potential nuclear weapons program. In pursuance of this goal, President Obama has made consultation with Israel at every level a key component of his foreign policy agenda.

While continuing to participate in formal multilateral negotiations between the permanent five members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (also known as the P5+1) and Iran, the Obama administration has forged a strong international coalition to pressure Iran over its nuclear work. These sanctions have made a considerable impact on the Iranian economy, severely constraining Iran’s ability to sell its oil.

The last few years have seen some reversals of gains that Iran made between 2003 and 2009. The Arab Spring has undercut Iran’s ideological appeal in the region, and Iran faces the potential loss of its ally in Syria’s Assad regime, which would be another serious blow.

Please join the Center for American Progress on October 12 for an in-depth discussion with American and Israeli national security analysts on how the United States and Israel are meeting the Iranian challenge.
