Mr. Luers reported on the discussions that he had been holding in Europe with Iranians and former officials over the last year and their attitudes as well as some problems that could be resolved. Among the opinions of the Iranians that need to be changed before progress is made is their believe that the U.S. wants a change in regime.

Mr. Hadian reported that conflicting domestic views in Iran complicate compliance with the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Mr. Cordesman believes that relations with Iran could be eased, but that Iran would not be able to reach formal agreements until its internal issues are resolved. He reminded the committee that Iran has a long history of secret nuclear projects and doubted the ability of intelligence services to discover the covert aspects of a nuclear program. He also advised a change in the rhetoric used to address Iran.

The program was interrupted during the testimony of Mr. Cordesman, before the testimony of Mr. Robert Einhorn, senior advisor for the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and before the witnesses could be questioned. close
