Reaching a Nuclear Agreement with Iran
The five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the United States (U.S.), the United Kingdom (UK), France, China and Russia, plus Germany, known as the P5+1, and Iran have been working toward a deal that would stem Tehran’s nuclear manufacturing capability. Specifically, the accord would lift debilitating sanctions from Iran, while preventing Tehran from continuing the enrichment processes needed to build nuclear weapons. These talks have been ongoing since March 2013 with a formal deal reached, but still unsigned by the U.S. and Iranian leadership (Lyons). Will these two nations’ agreement be acceptable to their respective leaderships?
