Iran's deal: fears v. assurances

Would a nuclear deal with Tehran make the Middle East more or less stable?
0 Comments

Nuclear negotiations with Iran are being closely watched by Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). They’re worried a deal with Iran would bolster Tehran’s increasing influence in the Middle East. U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, flew to Riyadh last week to ease fears and assure that a diplomatic solution to Iran’s atomic programme would make the region more secure. We discuss at 19:30GMT.
