One of the most important issues when closing a negotiation is to make sure that the agreement can be implemented and communicated well to stakeholders. Earlier, we already touched the Iran Nuclear Deal. Back then we talked about the role of Vienna as a place for top level negotiations and about different interpretations about a possible deal. Back then a deal was far away, in the meantime the negotiators reached an agreement.
As you may well be aware, the negotiated terms are fiercely discussed in the USA. For us it was particularly interesting how the Obama government tailored the deal and now is able to communicate to results. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a speech about the Iran nuclear agreement before an audience of several hundred assembled on September 2, 2015, at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In a very interesting article he published his thoughts in “A Medium Company” and called it “Debunking Myths Around the Nuclear Agreement “.
The 5 myths he covers are
Myth No. 1 That the deal is based on trust or on a naïve expectation that Iran will behave as we ask.
Myth No. 2 That we are weakening the security of Israel and other Mideast allies.
Myth No. 3 That this deal would somehow legitimize Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
Myth No. 4 That Iran could in fact get away with building a covert nuclear facility because the deal allows a maximum of 24 days to obtain access to a suspicious site.
Myth No. 5 That the sanctions relief Iran will receive under the plan is both too generous and too dangerous.
