Iran recently signed an international agreement with several nations, including the United States (US), the United Kindgom, Russia and China
The agreement could see Iran escape from sanctions that have been imposed on it for the past ten years.
The agreement also states that Iran may only use one site in the country for nuclear development for the next 15 years.
On Wednesday US President Barack Obama spoke to the US Congress, which has been largely skeptical about the deal. He said that easing Iran asserts the right for the nation to play a constructive Middle East role.
We spoke with Dr Christopher Ferrero, Political scientist at Syracuse University about the potential impacts of the nuclear deal.
The political traffic in the United states is not going to embrace this as comprehensive rapprochement right now. This is probably going to be sold strictly as a good nuclear deal.The approach will emphasise that this reduces the likelihood of a war with Iran in the future and the use of nuclear weapons.— Dr Christopher Ferrero, Political scientist at Syracuse University
According to Ferrero, the US is better off with having a cooperative relationship with Iran, rather than an antagonistic one when trying to resolve many political matters.
