On Sunday, December 5th, Iran and the P5+1 (the permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) are scheduled to meet for a new round of negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.

Iran has declared that it will not give in to international demands to halt uranium enrichment nor will sanctions have any impact on Teheran's decisions. So why is the Iranian regime still interested in negotiations and should efforts continue to negotiate with Ahmedinajad's regime?

Iran expert and author Meir Javedanfar will analyze the upcoming diplomatic initiative and what the likely outcome will be.

Meir Javedanfar is the co-author of The Nuclear Sphinx of Tehran - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and The State of Iran . Born and raised in Iran, he is a regular columnist for The Guardian and The Diplomat. He is the head of the Middle East Economic and Political Analysis Company (MEEPAS), and has advised several governments on Iran related issues.
