U.S. President Donald Trump has decided not to certify that Iran is in compliance with the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the agreement constraining Iran's nuclear-weapons program.Instead, the U.S. and Iran will need to negotiate on a range of non-nuclear issues.Bilateral negotiations between the U.S. and Iran, however, might allow the U.S. to make progress on the issues that are important to it – and, equally significant, to understand modern Iran better.For Iran, such grievances include U.S. support for the 1953 coup in Iran, and America's ties to the Shah and his brutal secret police, the Savak.The final vital issue that must be addressed in any bilateral talks between the U.S. and Iran is the latter's military activity and, in particular, its missile programs.To determine the appropriate role and capabilities of Iran's military, direct talks between the U.S. and Iran, like those the U.S. has pursued with China, might be in order.
