Last week we presented a webinar discussing key points of the recent framework agreement for a nuclear deal with Iran, which was announced on April 2. In case you missed it, you can watch a recording of it here.

The webinar starts with an introduction to the issues behind the negotiations, with Lisbeth Gronlund describing the two routes countries can take to produce fissile materials for a nuclear weapon. I follow that with a brief history of Iran’s nuclear program, beginning in the 1950s, and then provide an overview of what is publicly known about the April 2 framework.

In the final part of the webinar, Ed Lyman discusses some of the key technical issues and questions about the framework agreement.
