    Mark Fitzpatrick: Mystery explosion at Iran's Parchin military complex

    10 October 2014.  Reports of an explosion or fire at the Parchin military complex in Iran have again raised questions about the country's nuclear facilities. Parchin is where Iran is suspected of conducting nuclear weapons-related experiments. Mark Fitzpatrick, Director of the Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Programme at IISS, has told BBC News that after so much international attention on the complex in recent years, 'it's unlikely that Iran would still be using it for nuclear...

    Chi Kong Chyong and Pierre Noël: Ukraine’s energy brinkmanship

    10 October 2014.  In the fog of its foreign-policy confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, the European Union seems unable to see its energy-security interests clearly or to act accordingly. Kiev has used the international crisis triggered by Russia’s actions in Crimea and eastern Ukraine to restructure the contracts with Moscow it signed in 2009. It wants a much lower price for its gas imports and the ability to swap gas with Gazprom’s clients in...

    Mark Fitzpatrick: Nuclear latency with an attitude

    07 October 2014.  ‘Who coined the term “Japan model”?’, plaintively asked a participant at a workshop on nuclear latency at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington on 2 October. Panellists speaking about Iran’s and Brazil’s nuclear programmes respectively had both used the term to describe the aspirations of those countries for acquiring advanced civilian nuclear technologies. Like Japan, both want to expand uranium enrichment unhindered. Brazil’s case raises its own set of questions, such...

    Mark Fitzpatrick: The Iran nuclear talks – a view from London

    03 October 2014.  I am happy to be back in the United States, but I do like living in London. For those who prefer moderation, the weather is rarely ever too hot or too cold. The political weather is moderate, too. When the northern bits of the island threatened to break the 307-year union, Westminster’s response was to show its love by flying Scottish flags. British political parties quibble on many matters, but...

The insurgency in eastern Ukraine, bolstered by alleged Russian support, is still killing his soldiers despite the ceasefire now in place. While Poroshenko landed in Washington hopeful...
