    Iran: Between War and Diplomacy

    For almost a decade, major powers have employed a combination of tactics – diplomacy, sanctions and even threats of war – to halt Iran’s nuclear activities.
    However Tehran has continued to expand these activities and now stands perhaps only one year away from achieving a nuclear weapons capability. As a result, politicians in the US, Israel and elsewhere are increasingly weighing a military conflict to head off the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran.

    Michael Singh, the managing director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a think tank dedicated to advancing US interests in the Middle East, will explore what options remain to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, with a specific focus on the role of the US and China as well as potential Sino-American cooperation.

    DATE: Mar 13 (Tuesday)
    TIME: 4:30-6pm
    VENUE: FACE Bar, 26 Dongcaoyuan, Gongti Nanlu 工体南路东草园26号, Beijing, China
    ENTRANCE: free to FCCC members, 80 RMB at the door for non-members
    REGISTRATION: at fcccadmin@gmail.com

    Michael Singh was Senior Director for Near East and North African Affairs at the White House from 2007-2008 and Director for several Middle Eastern countries – including Syria – on the NSC staff from 2005-2007. Earlier, Mr. Singh served as Special Assistant to Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, as well as staff aide to US Ambassador to Israel Dan Kurtzer.
