Iran and the International Community: Roots of the Perpetual Crisis
Middle East Institute’s Sixtieth Anniversary Conference
Washington, DC, November 13, 2006
Let me began by thanking Dr. John Limbert for his kind introduction. I am equally grateful to the Middle East Institute and its Acting President Ambassador David Mack for their invitation! I congratulate and salute the MEI for sixty years of uninterrupted and distinguished service to the American and Middle Eastern peoples and governments to better understand each other and for developing closer amity and more productive relationships. For the benefit of time, I will present a shorter version of my arguments, making the longer version available in print [the present version].
