NPR's Steve Inskeep will moderate reunion conversation between co-authors of Cooperative Threat Reduction Program

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Viewers worldwide can watch Tuesday as the two men most responsible for reducing the world's nuclear weapons stockpiles reunite at the University of Indianapolis to discuss current and future global security issues.

"Diplomacy in a Dangerous World: A Conversation with Senators Richard G. Lugar and Sam Nunn" will be moderated by Steve Inskeep, co-host of NPR's Morning Edition. Presented by the University of Indianapolis and WFYI Public Media, the event at UIndy's Ransburg Auditorium will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The webcast will be available at http://www.uindy.edu/lugar-nunn or at wfyi.org.

The two former senators have received multiple Nobel Peace Prize nominations for their work in crafting the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, which became law in 1992 and is credited with deactivating more than 7,600 nuclear warheads that were once aimed at the United States. Their discussion at UIndy will examine current threats around the world posed by weapons of mass destruction, as well as the future of U.S. relations with such nations as Iran, Russia, North Korea and Syria. This will be their first public appearance together since a 20th anniversary symposium on the reduction program in 2012.

Lugar, who represented Indiana in the U.S. Senate from 1977 to 2013, is president of the Lugar Center in Washington, D.C., and a distinguished professor at UIndy, which is home to the Richard G. Lugar Academy and its leadership programs for college and high school students.

Nunn represented Georgia in the U.S. Senate from 1972 to 1996 and currently serves as co-chairman and chief executive officer of the D.C.-based Nuclear Threat Initiative.

Inskeep is an author and award-winning journalist who has reported from around the world. Since 2004 he has hosted the nation's most widely heard radio news show, Morning Edition.
