Preventing Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability is one of the most urgent national security challenges facing the United States. Despite enduring 15 years of sanctions, a cyber attack on its nuclear facilities and other setbacks, Iran is fast approaching the nuclear threshold. Stopping the clock on Iran’s nuclear development requires demonstrating resolve and a triple-track approach of diplomacy, robust sanctions, and credible, visible preparations for a military option of last resort. BPC held a discussion on these important recommendations being released in its fourth Iran report, Meeting the Challenge: Stopping the Clock.
