An interim deal reached yesterday between the international community and Iran regarding the country’s nuclear program, will allow Iran to keep the central elements of its uranium program, while stopping its enrichment at a level lower than what is needed for nuclear arms.

In addition to a six-month window for Iran to allow more United Nations access to nuclear sites, sanctions will be eased — notably in the oil, automotive and aviation industries — though not ended.

Jim Walsh, an expert in international security at MIT, joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the details of the deal.
