News Talk Online October 1, 2009: Iran Meets With The P5+1

Iran met today in Geneva with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany and emerged pledging to open its nuclear facilities to IAEA inspectors. Iran also agreed to meet with the P5+1 again before the end of the year.

All of this sounds great, but can Iran be trusted to fulfill this commitment?

My guest today on News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network, Leonor Tomero, said Iran must be held accountable and give the inspectors invasive access to the two facilities. But Tomero, director for non-proliferation at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation says she's not overly concerned about any delaying tactics Iran might attempt. The threat assessment she's read suggests that Iran won't have the capability to launch a nuclear attack until 2015 or later.
