This thesis examines the United States' ability to gain Russian commitments to limit or ban conventional arms sales to Iran. It tests the hypotheses that specific factors in the US-Russian bilateral relationship were present when Russia committed to limit conventional arms sales to Iran and absent when Russia sought to withdraw from or avoid such commitments. To test my hypotheses I examined two cases: the Gore-Chernomyrdin Agreement on arms sales and the September 2010 Russian ban on arms deliveries. My research supports the presence of four factors associated with gaining Russian commitments to limit arms sales to Iran.
