Abraham Sofaer, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow: Effective Policy Toward Iran

Abraham D. Sofaer, George P. Shultz Senior Fellow in Foreign Policy and National Security Affairs, Hoover Institution; Legal Advisor, U.S. Department of State, 1985 to 1990; Author, Taking on Iran
 
George P. Shultz, Former U.S. Secretary of State; Distinguished Fellow, Hoover Institution - Moderator
 
A renowned expert in international law discusses legal options that the U.S. can pursue with Iran and how the U.S. can successfully use negotiation to convince Iran to give up any intention to develop nuclear weapons. It makes sense now, Sofaer posits, before Iran has shown both the abilities and the intention to develop nuclear weapons, for the U.S. to stop projecting weakness by indulging the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ illegal conduct, and to start utilizing any opportunity that greater strength provides to negotiate professionally and consistently.
