NEW YORK, March 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the crisis with Iran continues to escalate, can a diplomatic solution be found?
The stakes here are truly monumental: Real possibilities include the threat of attack on Iranian nuclear facilities; the prospect of Iran's military retaliation; the closing of the Straits of Hormuz; and the suspension of oil supply from Iran to Europe.
In this Carnegie Council event for specially invited guests, Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering will discuss the need for diplomatic rather than military engagement with Iran.
