Kittrie recognized for panel work on nuclear nonproliferation
was recognized as one of five nonproliferation experts who authored a report that was featured in dozens of news outlets worldwide on Jan. 14, including Reuters, Agence France Press, and in media outlets in the United States, Canada, China, France, Greece, India, Indonesia, Israel, Lebanon, Mexico, the Netherlands, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and Vietnam.
Kittrie and his four co-chairs produced a 154-page report, titled "U.S. Nonproliferation Strategies for the Changing Middle East," which urged the U.S. and its allies to increase sanctions on the Iranian government before it can produce enough weapons-grade uranium for a nuclear bomb.
"Based on the current trajectory of Iran's nuclear program, we estimate that Iran could reach critical capability in mid-2014," according to the report.
The report contains dozens of specific recommendations arranged in chapters focused on Iran’s nuclear program, proliferation by state actors (other than Iran) in the changing Middle East, proliferation by non-state actors in the region, cooperative nonproliferation programs applicable to the Middle East, and enhanced partnership with Europe on nonproliferation in this volatile region.
