The following is a list of the specific topics that the candidates will speak about, announced by the Commission for Presidential Debates:
-America's role in the world
-Our longest war - Afghanistan and Pakistan
-Red Lines - Israel and Iran
-The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - I
-The Changing Middle East and the New Face of Terrorism - II
-The Rise of China and Tomorrow's World
Talks of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons have been going on for a while now and both candidates agree on the fact that there must be some act put in place to prevent that from happening. ABC News noted that when asked if he would be open to one-on-one talks with Iran regarding their nuclear weapons, Romney declined to answer. However, he said in a speech that Obama's foreign policy had "emboldened" Iran. Obama's administration on the other hand said it will more strictly enforce already set sanctions on Iran. That leads into the topic of Israel and the U.S.'s relation with the country (and any efforts they make to prevent Iran from using weapons against them).
Both Romney and Obama said they will comply to a NATO plan to withdraw all combat forces out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014, but neither have mentioned if any or how much action will be taken in 2013, according to a report by The Washington Post's editorial board. To chime in, at the vice presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden said, "We are leaving [Afghanistan] in 2014. Period."
The two segments of the night focising on "the New Face of Terrorism" will give the candidates a chance to clarify what they think of the Benghazi attack.The death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stephens and the attack of a U.S. Consolate in Libya was brought up in the second debate and viewers can be sure that it will be highlighted more on Monday night.
