In July 2015 in Vienna, six global powers: US; UK; Russia; China; France; plus Germany (P5 + 1), agreed to a deal with Iran to limit the country’s nuclear weapons capability. President Donald Trump made noise throughout the 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign that he wanted to “tear up the deal,” calling it “the worst deal ever.”
The White House sent U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley to Vienna last week. She met with officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The body is responsible for verifying Iran’s compliance under the agreement. It’s widely believed the U.S. is trying to make the case that Iran is not in compliance giving reason to nullify the accord.
Just after the two-year anniversary of the deal, we’ll ask Trita Parsi, president of the National Iranian American Council, about its future.
