Nuclear experts from Iran and six world powers are meeting in New York this week amid rising hopes that an agreement can be reached to limit Iran's ability to produce nuclear weapons before a July 20 deadline.
As the Obama administration presses the United Nations this week to rid Syria of its chemical weapons, it faces the stark reality that the United States has failed to meet a 2012 deadline to destroy its remaining arsenal and has never pressured its closest Middle East ally, Israel, to sign the treaty banning such weapons.
"The administration has given up on the argument that the deal would bring India into the nonproliferation mainstream," he said.
But Mr. Kimball, noting that such safeguards exist only at six Indian facilities, said the deal would not commit India to "any nonproliferation action it wasn't already committed to."
