Moniz suggests an approach based not on trust, but the need to “verify, verify, verify.” Moniz also addressed claims by critics of the Iran deal that the agreement will expire, noting that its key provisions, those that allow unprecedented monitoring and verification of Iran’s compliance to ensure that it never builds a nuclear weapon, will remain in place forever.

Together, the partners are identifying challenges associated with nuclear disarmament verification and developing potential procedures and technologies to address those challenges.
