The Heat: Iran nuclear deal

The Heat


Iran said the United States crossed the line by imposing sanctions on its chief judge and is rejecting any changes to the 2015 nuclear accord.

On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump waived sanctions against Tehran but said he would not grant another reprieve unless the U.S. Congress and European allies strengthened the agreement.

The U.S. Treasury Department also placed sanctions on 14 people and entities.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the U.S. has failed to undermine the deal and hailed it as a victory for Tehran.

To discuss the Iran nuclear deal:

  • Kaveh Afrasiabi, a political scientist and the author of the “Iran Nuclear Accord and the Remaking of the Middle East”
  • Negar Mortazavi, a Washington correspondent for Iran International
  • Trita Parsi, the founder and president of the National Iranian American Council
  • Farhad Alavi, a managing partner with Akrivis Law Group with expertise on U.S. sanctions against Iran
