Iran Agrees to Talk, but Not about Its Nuclear Program

Hosted by

President Ahmadinejad says international sanctions are making Iran stronger, but there's evidence they're squeezing the economy and making life increasingly difficult for individual citizens. Meantime stalled talks on Iran's nuclear program were on again, but now they're off again. This month, the US Institute of Peace Press will release The Iran Primer: Power, Politics and US Policy, which contains top-level briefings by 50 seasoned experts from 28 foreign-policy think-tanks, eight universities and six administrations. The editor is former reporter Robin Wright, now a fellow at the Institute.
