After over 18 months of tough negotiations, representatives of the P5+1 nations announced last week a framework agreement for a final deal regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
We had a special briefing with Ploughshares Fund President Joe Cirincione on what this framework agreement looks like, what final details still need to be hammered out and how a pivotal debate in Congress could decide its fate.
