The Obama administration’s policy of engagement with Iran was put to the test on Thursday in their highest-level direct talks in three decades. The United States was joined by five other world powers in the meetings in Geneva.
For the U.S., the meeting was all about persuading Iran to come clean on its nuclear program. Thursday’s talks ended with Iran agreeing to more talks before the end of the month.
Flynt Leverett, the director of the Iran Project at the New America Foundation and professor of international relations at Penn State, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the outcome of the talks and the possibility of sanctions on Iran.
If the talks ultimately fail and sanctions are imposed on Iran, do you think Iran will give up its nuclear program?
