    A Task of Monumental Importance for Putin
    Rose Gottemoeller October 2, 2008 Nezavisimaya Gazeta

    Putin’s role in Russia currently remains unclear. Amidst the transition of the U.S. government, this factor will hinder U.S.-Russia relations. However, a bilateral commission made up of past U.S. and Russian presidents, with Putin serving the role of past president, can alleviate this problem.

    American Giver
    Ashley J. Tellis September 30, 2008 Forbes

    The U.S.-India civilian nuclear cooperation agreement passed another key hurdle on September 27 when the U.S. House voted in favor of the deal. The agreement will help limit the nuclear proliferation threat by keeping New Delhi from embracing foreign suppliers whose nuclear policies are more liberal than Washington's.

    If Iran Stone-Walls, Stop Trying to Negotiate
    George Perkovich September 24, 2008 Council on Foreign Relations Interview

    The United States and its negotiating partners should set a deadline for Iran to agree to negotiations on suspending its nuclear enrichment program. If Iran still refuses to talk, the negotiators should pull all previous incentive offers from the table and seek tougher sanctions.

    Abolishing Nuclear Weapons
    George Perkovich, Michael Quinlan September 22, 2008 Washington, D.C.

    The abolition of nuclear weapons is rising on the international agenda, made clear in statements by U.S. presidential candidates, British and Indian leaders, and a campaign led by former U.S. officials. George Perkovich and Sir Michael Quinlan explore whether and how the elimination of all nuclear arsenals could be verified and enforced.

    In this event hosted by the Carnegie Endowment's Nonproliferation Program, Mycle Schneider, author of the 2007 World Nuclear Industry Status Report, questions whether the world civilian nuclear industry is capable of achieving a "nuclear renaissance," given its declining share of electricity market, recent construction problems, and education crisis.

    Iran Says “No”—Now What?
    George Perkovich September 15, 2008 Carnegie Endowment

    A new IAEA report says that Iran continues to defy UN Security Council resolutions and enrich uranium while refusing to answer IAEA questions regarding possible weaponization activities. If the United States is to induce Iran to halt enrichment activities, both the costs of defiance and the benefits of cooperation must be greater, warns George Perkovich in a new policy brief.

    Missed Opportunity: Nuclear Suppliers Group
    Sharon Squassoni September 10, 2008

    Last week, a group of 45 countries dealt a serious blow to the world's nuclear nonproliferation regime. Succumbing to enormous pressure exerted by President Bush and his administration, the Nuclear Suppliers Group agreed to allow nuclear trade once more with India – a country that has not signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and tested nuclear weapons in 1974 and 1998.

    Frequently Asked Questions about India, the Nuclear Suppliers Group, and Next Steps
    Sharon Squassoni September 10, 2008

    On September 6, 2008, the Nuclear Suppliers Group decided to break a 16-year ban and allow nuclear trade with India. Now President Bush must prove to Congress that the proposed trade deal meets the requirements of the Hyde Act.

    Minding the Gaps: U.S. & India Views on Nuclear Cooperation
    Sharon Squassoni September 4, 2008

    This analysis compares U.S. law, the draft U.S.-India nuclear cooperation agreement, the answers to the questions for the record and Indian official statements on the potential consequences of another Indian nuclear weapons test on U.S.-Indian nuclear cooperation. The answers to the questions for the record reveal gaps in U.S. and Indian interpretations.

    The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START): What Should the Follow-Up Be?
    Linton Brooks September 4, 2008 Moscow

    The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START), an integral part of the bilateral nuclear relationship between Russia and the United States, will expire in December 2009. To discuss what should replace the treaty, the Carnegie Moscow Center hosted Ambassador Linton Brooks, the United States’ chief negotiator during the 1991 START talks.

    One Way to Save the Relationship
    Rose Gottemoeller August 27, 2008 The Moscow Times 中文

    Although U.S.-Russia relations have deteriorated, options for cooperation still exist. Particularly in the area of nuclear nonproliferation, collaboration is essential and may be the best way to ameliorate relations. Russia, the U.S., and Europe should start with negotiating the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), which will provide a starting point for brokering a new consensus.

    All Eyes on the Nuclear Suppliers Group: Will the Nonproliferation Mainstream Shift?
    Sharon Squassoni August 18, 2008

    The Nuclear Suppliers Group can help bring India into the nonproliferation mainstream by imposing conditions on civilian nuclear trade with India or else risk significant damage to itself and the nonproliferation regime.

    Questions Linger about India's Safeguards
    Dean Rust August 14, 2008

    Uncertainty about what the IAEA-India safeguards agreement actually means and whether India and the United States have a common understanding reinforces the need for continued close scrutiny of all aspects of the U.S.-India nuclear deal as approvals are sought from the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) and the U.S. Congress.

    Frequently Asked Questions about India and Nuclear Trade
    Sharon Squassoni August 9, 2008 中文

    The newly approved IAEA-India nuclear safeguards agreement moves to consideration by the Nuclear Suppliers Group in late August to early September, but several ambiguities in the language of the agreement continue to make it controversial and it is highly unlikely to secure U.S. congressional approval by year-end.

    Saving the NPT and the Nonproliferation Regime in an Era of Nuclear Renaissance
    Pierre Goldschmidt July 24, 2008 Testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism

    A revival of nuclear energy worldwide appears to be looming, but it will not take place overnight and now is the time to ensure that future nuclear expansion is as safe and secure as possible, said Pierre Goldschmidt, in testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade.

    A Nonproliferation Disaster
    Jayantha Dhanapala, Daryl Kimball July 10, 2008

    Decision time has arrived on the controversial nuclear cooperation proposal that was first proposed by President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in July 2005. Because the NSG and IAEA traditionally operate by consensus, any one of a number of states can act to block or modify the ill-conceived arrangement. They have good reason and a responsibility to do so.
