On June 4, approximately 20 Council for a Livable World members participated in a conference call on the nuclear crises in North Korea and Iran with Council Board Member, Dr. Jim Walsh. Walsh is a renowned expert on international security who has been involved in private nuclear arms control talks with Iranian and North Korean officials.
This call of course took place before the election in Iran, so post-election commentary isn’t available, but Walsh did address what the election’s outcome might mean for U.S.-Iran relations.
Other topics covered? What impact the President’s recent speech in Cairo might have on U.S.-Iran relations, what the recent naming of a successor to Kim Jong-il means for North Korea, and whether the same formula can be used for dealing with the regimes in both countries.
