An NPR News Special: the Iran Nuclear Deal

This one-hour special will be hosted by Steve Inskeep, Sunday at 6 pm.

Few Americans remember that Iran launched its nuclear program in the 1950s with the direct backing of its then ally, the United States. That American support would turn to sanctions and threats of war over Iran's nuclear ambitions. The bitter rivals opened secret negotiations two years ago and are now party to a high-risk deal. Supporters and critics agree it's a pivotal moment -- but for better or worse?

"The Iran Nuclear Deal" examines how this nuclear agreement came to be, the heated debate in Washington, and how the deal could play out in the Middle East as it goes through a period of historic upheaval.

Listen Sunday at 6:00 pm on HQR News, 91.3fm.
