The stakes are high around a potential long-term nuclear deal with Iran

In his State of the Union speech this week President Obama said he'd veto a bill that calls for new sanctions on Iran. Talks between Iran and six world powers are set to begin in February. The aim is get Iran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for a gradual end to sanctions, which have crippled the country's economy. Currently, an interim deal is in place which was reached last November.
