WASHINGTON D.C., ― U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz will participate in a Director’s Forum 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center Auditoriumin in Washington, D.C. on the importance of nuclear non-proliferation and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Last month, after years of negotiations and months of preparations for the implementation of the JCPOA, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) certified that Iran had completed all of the required nuclear steps to reach Implementation Day, and as a result, the U.S. lifted its nuclear-related sanctions.
Moniz will provide remarks outlining what steps Iran took to reach Implementation Day and how the United States can be confident that Iran’s breakout time to a nuclear weapon has been extended to at least one year.
The Secretary’s remarks will be followed by a discussion with Jane Harman, Director, President and CEO of the Wilson Center. Immediately after the event, Secretary Moniz will take questions from the media.
