In Vienna, delegations continue to negotiate Iran’s return to compliance with the JCPOA. On Monday, January 24, the issue of releasing U.S. citizens came up on the agenda as a precondition for continuing negotiations. Earlier, the American delegation insisted the negotiations on prisoners release were not tied to those in Vienna and were conducted separately. Apparently, this connection is now urgent to advance the problem with imprisoned U.S. citizens; unless the issues are linked now, the U.S. might miss the opportunity to exert pressure on Tehran’s stance.

Recently, the world’s attention has been increasingly focused on the situation in Ukraine. On January 21 Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken met in Geneva to discuss some issues including guarantees that Ukraine would not be admitted to NATO. The situation is reminiscent of the typical “military alarm”: the media increasingly report that Russia is drawing troops to the eastern border of Ukraine, arms supplies are actively being sent to Ukraine, and sanctions would be imposed on Russia if it unleashes war. There are also reports that the United States is beginning to evacuate its diplomats from Kyiv. At the same time, NATO promised to build up a group of its troops in Europe.

Landmark 100th issue of Security Index Journal

SECURITY INDEX 100th ISSUE

In the spring of 2012 PIR Center reached a major milestone, the 100th issue of the Security Index journal was published. We tried to make the event memorable for our Russian and international readers as well.

To mark the occasion, we held three scientific and practical seminars, in Moscow, Geneva and Vienna, to present the 100th issue to a select Russian and international audience. We have discussed topical issues of nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament and nuclear security. The 100th issue was also be presented to delegates of the Preparatory Committee of the 2012 NPT Review Conference and other key international forums.

We have decided that the 100th issue will largely focus on the road the Security Index – and its predecessor, the Yaderny Kontrol – have travelled over the past nearly 20 years in studying issues of nonproliferation, nuclear arms control and nuclear security. Going back to our traditional roots in the 100th issue, we also look into the future, discussing key issues of the nuclear nonproliferation agenda for the 21st century.
