Lecture Information
The Sasakawa Peace Foundation invited Mr. Robert Einhorn, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution to give a lecture on "The Iran Nuclear Issue: Can Negotiations Succeed?", in Tokyo on December 3rd, 2013. The international community has been concerned about Iran's developing uranium enrichment, which would enable it to attain the nuclear weapons, and thus, the U.S., EU, China, and Russia took diplomatic initiatives to resolve the issue. Several years after the negotiation deadlock and conducting economic sanctions on Iran, the recent Six Party Talks with Iran in Geneva have been reported to foresee a great progress between Iran and the international community in the future. Based on the background, Mr. Einhorn provided his recent analysis on the issue and discussed about the future direction of the negotiations based on his own experiences deeply involved in the U.S. negotiation process toward Iran.

Before joining the Brookings institution in 2013, Mr. Einhorn served as the State Department special advisor for nonproliferation and arms control. In that capacity, he played a leading role in the formulation and execution of U.S. policy toward Iran's nuclear program, both with respect to sanctions and negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 countries. He played a key role in the development of the 2010 Nuclear Posture Review and served as U.S. delegation head in negotiations with South Korea on a successor civil nuclear agreement. He was also assistant secretary of state for nonproliferation under Clinton administration (1999-2001). We will also invite Professor Nobumasa Akiyama of Hitotsubashi University, distinguished Japanese expert on nonproliferation as a moderator.
