An historic agreement concerning Iran’s nuclear program has been reached between the world powers (P5+1=Permanent members of the UN Security Council + Germany) and Iran. Negotiators working overtime in Geneva came to a deal where Iran would halt certain nuclear development and permit inspection in exchange for the partial lifting of sanctions. The time frame is six months. It is hoped that a broader agreement can be reached during that time. As expected, both Israel and Saudi Arabia have voiced strong opposition to the agreement. The question is what long-term effects will come of this agreement? Will Iran again join the wider community of nations? Will its economy significantly improve? Is this deal a blessing, or something to worry about?Please give us your thougths on this matter.
