The Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA): Can It Be Ressurrected? Is It Too Late? KGNU Boulder. Hemispheres, Middle East Dialogues Hosted by Jim Nelson. Tuesday, December 29, 2020. 6-7 PM Mountain States Time.

Just before Christmas some 150 members of the House of Representatives – including 4 from Colorado (Crow, De Gette, Neguse, Perlmutter – signed a letter to President-Elect Joe Biden urging him to return to the Joint Comprehesive Plan of Action as it was written and agreed upon in 2015 by Britain, China, Iran, Russia, USA and the European Union, that is without conditions. At the heart of that agreement: Iran would limit the enrichment of nuclear materials in exchange for the USA and Europe lifting sanctions against Iran.

Here in Colorado a growing coalition, Coloradans for Middle East Diplomacy and Peace, in which the Friends Committee on National Legislation, J-Street, and the National Iranian-American Council in conjunction with the state chapter of Jewish Voice For Peace have come together press the incoming Biden Administration to do likewise. This coalition is holding a zoom conference on. Thursday January 21 at 5:30 MST on the subject. The public is invited. It will feature feature the insights of Nader Hashemi (D.U. Center for Middle East Studies), Barbara Slavin (Atlantic Council), Trita Parsi (Quincy Institute), Hassan El-Tayyab (FCNL), and Dylan Williams (J Street). Media contact: Sara Avery, 303-489-2431, sara.avery@gmail.com.

In the face of stiff opposition from groups like AIPAC, Christians United For Israel, and assorted neoconservatives, is there enough public support to accomplish this important step towards peace and away from the growing possibility of confrontation?

This and more, KGNU – Tuesday at 6 pm MST.

    One thing is certain, it will not be renegotiated. I can’t wait till Rouhani is gone and a hardliner takes his place.

      From where I’m sitting – agreed, it certainly does not look like the agreement will be re-negotiated… nor should it be. Best to you, Seasons Greetings and all that. Rob P.

    Great to see this initiative for discussion on resumption of the agreement.
