The Iran nuclear deal has stirred much debate and controversy in the United States over the last two months. Seyed Hossein Mousavian and Emad Kiyaei, two Iranians, teamed up to shed light on the nuclear deal and Iran’s perspective on the global landscape.
Seyed Hossein Mousavian has some advice to those who are critical of proposed Iran nuclear deal: “Be realistic.”
The final lecture of Week Six’s topic, “Iran: From Ancient Persia to Middle East Powder Keg,” featured Seyed Hossein Mousavian, who said, like many other lecturers this week, that the Iranian nuclear weapons conflict could be peacefully solved with the application of diplomacy, negotiation and compromise.
Seyed Hossein Mousavian has a level of first-hand experience with Iran that few scholars in the United States can match. He was born in the country in 1957 and has since held senior positions in Iranian organizations including the Foreign Ministry and Supreme National Security Council of Iran. Since 2007, he has resided in Princeton, N.J.
