IRAN:

CFR's Ferguson explains how diplomats should counter Iran's nuclear demands

As members of the U.N. Security Council debate how to deal with Iran's nuclear ambitions, Charles Ferguson of the Council on Foreign Relations joins OnPoint to discuss the options available to the United Nations and to the Bush administration. Ferguson explains why neither military action nor economic sanctions against Iran are viable solutions and why Iran's economic ties to Russia and China could prove to be problematic. Plus, he talks about how negotiations with Iran could influence the war in Iraq and also analyzes President Bush's recent agreement with India on nuclear power.
