The Project on Nuclear Issues (PONI) is pleased to invite you to a live debate on whether the P5+1 should tale immediate action against Iran if no agreement is reached during negotiations. Since a temporary accord was reached in November 2013, Iran, the United States, France, Germany, Russia, China and Britain have been engaged in negotiations aimed at curbing Iran's pursuit of a nuclear program. The negotiations have been extended twice and the most recent extension promised a political agreement by March and a comprehensive deal by June 30. What should the P5+1 do if no agreement is reached by the end of June? Dr. Matthew Kroenig and Dr. Ted Galen Carpenter will debate this issue at the next PONI Live Debate.

The debate will also be webcast live. Viewers can ask questions of the debaters in real-time by emailing Sarah Minot.
