The recent Iranian presidential election and statements made by candidates in televised debates showed that U.S. and international sanctions against Iran are working, Ambassador Daniel Fried, the U.S. global sanctions coordinator, says on this week’s episode of “Conversations with Nicholas Kralev.”

That has improved the “context” for future negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, Fried adds. He also talks about the effectiveness of sanctions against Syria, North Korea, Burma, Russia and other countries, and what it takes to impose and lift sanctions.

A Foreign Service officer since 1977, Fried has served in Russia and Serbia, and as U.S. ambassador to Poland. He was assistant secretary of state for European affairs during the George W. Bush administration, and special envoy for the transfer of Guantanamo detainees to other countries from 2009 until early 2013.
