The main argument we’re going to make tonight is that to turn around the current situation – the danger of a U.S. attack on Iran, which would provoke a military response that could ignite a regional war – both the Trump Administration and the Islamic Republic of Iran should enter into immediate negotiations without pre-conditions.

Both sides have to be ready and willing to make compromises of a substantial nature – in the US case, to end its sanctions against the Islamic Republic and return to the J.C.P.O.A…

On the Iranian side – in exchange for a U.S. commitment not to engage in engage in efforts to overthrow the current government of Iran – either through military means or through its “maximum pressure” policy – that the Iranian government would be willing to negotiate

There is the possibility of pulling back from the abyss…but it will take a major effort on the part of both of these main parties.
