Trita Parsi; President of the National Iranian American Council


Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Trita Parsi, President of the National Iranian American Council, for a discussion of his new book "A Single Role of the Dice." Parsi analyzes President Obama's intentions toward Iran and how they were transformed by the politics of his tactics with its emphasis on the dual track of engagement and sanction. He discusses the various factors that impacted the negotiations between Iran and the U.S. including the domestic situation in Iran and the influence of Israeli goals. He also places the relationship in the context of the changing strategic environment in the Middle East, the role of third parties such as Brazil and Turkey, and the historical record of the requirements for successful international negotiations
