Take action to support the #IranDeal

Save to My Resources

As the world commemorates the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, we face a new and potentially more dangerous nuclear era. Today, the risks posed by the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and disruption are expanding around the globe. We are in a race between cooperation and catastrophe, and we must work together to address the threat. 

Despite a deficit of trust and confidence, negotiators from multiple countries were able to forge an agreement that—as Sam Nunn said recently—will make it “extremely difficult” for Iran to develop a bomb in the next 10-to-15 years. The Iran agreement presents an opportunity to support an example of successful diplomacy that includes a set of internationally-backed verification mechanisms to ensure Iran doesn't cheat. NTI believes this agreement will help limit the spread of nuclear weapons and contribute to a safer world.

For more information on the agreement:

  • Read the transcript of Senator Sam Nunn’s interview on the agreement with Georgia public radio.
  • Read an op-ed by Steve Andreasen, NTI national security consultant and former White House National Security Council director for defense policy and arms control.
  • See the Harvard University Belfer Center’s The Iran Nuclear Deal: A Definitive Guide.
