World powers reach a controversial deal with Iran over its nuclear program. What does it mean for the Middle East and beyond? In a historic agreement negotiators from Iran, the United States and five other world powers announced a landmark deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program. The sometimes testy negotiations culminated in an agreement that was praised by some and condemned by others. CCTV’s Richard Bestic provided an update from Vienna.

Mohammad Marandi, an Iranian professor, was asked about confusion over the inspection provision in the new deal.
