Heading for a nuclear showdown in the Middle East

Writing about web page

Iran has issued its response to UN Security Council demands that it stop its uranium enrichment programme by August 31st.

Whilst offering to join 'serious talks' on the issue Iranian officials have been clear in their refusal to back down to international pressure to end their vision of a nuclear Iran.

How do the latest developments change the diplomatic picture for both Iran and the UN? Does the passing of a UN resolution change the legal position of those involved and what lies behind the strategies of Tehran and the Security Council.

Daniel Joyner is an Associate Professor in International Law at the Warwick Law School. He is an expert in public international law in the security context, with particular interest in the area of proliferation studies, including non–proliferation treaties and regimes, issues of international trade and export control law, use of force law, and international legal theory.
