The Details of the Iran Nuclear Deal and #PlutoFlyBy

With Kelsey Davenport, Director for Nonproliferation Policy at the Arms Control Association, where she provides research and analysis on the nuclear and missile programs in Iran, North Korea, India, and Pakistan and on nuclear security issues.

Davenport’s most recent brief on the Iran Nuclear Deal, Iran Nuclear Policy Brief: An Effective, Verifiable Nuclear Deal With Iran, was published yesterday.

From the report:

“The P5+1 (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) have finalized a comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran that will verifiably block Iran’s pathways to nuclear weapons development–the uranium-enrichment route and the plutonium-separation route–and guard against a clandestine weapons program. We assess that the final agreement will be a net-plus for nonproliferation and will enhance U.S. and regional security.”
