Secretary of State John Kerry is in Geneva today to hammer out an interim nuclear agreement with Iran. Kerry’s presence is spurring speculation that a deal was imminent, but he told reporters that there are still many obstacles that need to be resolved before an agreement could be reached.
Although no details have been released, the Los Angeles Times reports that Iran could possibly agree to curtail its nuclear program amid increased international inspections in exchange for relaxed economic sanctions.
"I understand the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva, as well they should because they got everything and paid nothing," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters in Jerusalem. "They wanted relief of sanctions; after years of grueling sanctions, they got that. They paid nothing because they are not reducing in any way their nuclear enrichment capability. So Iran got the deal of the century and the international community got a bad deal."
What does Los Angeles’ large Iranian American community think of a possible deal? How would a nuclear deal with Iran complicates U.S. and Israeli relations?
