On May 23, the United States and its international partners sat down in Baghdad for another round of talks with Iran. While a diplomatic deal remains the best hope for a peaceful resolution to the international standoff over Iran’s nuclear program, experts disagree over what terms the United States should accept and what can be expected from Iran. BPC hosted a distinguished panel for a discussion of what to expect from, and what is at stake in, the upcoming negotiations.
