'A high-risk, high-reward gamble': What happens next with the Iran nuclear deal?
Donald Trump's decision to effectively withdraw from deal sparks outcry
U.S. President Donald Trump has thrown the global community into disarray with his decision to reinstate sanctions on Iran, effectively pulling the United States out of the nuclear deal negotiated in 2015.
To discuss what might have been behind the president's decision, and what happens next, The Current's Anna Maria Tremonti spoke to:
- Laura Holgate, the former U.S. ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency, who previously served as former president Barack Obama's top advisor on weapons of mass destruction.
- Derek Stoffel, CBC Middle East correspondent, based in Jerusalem.
- Behnam Ben Taleblu, research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a foreign policy and national security institute in Washington.
