World powers on November 24 agreed a landmark deal with Iran halting parts of its nuclear program.

On Sunday, Iran, the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia signed an interim agreement that would place Iran's nuclear program on hold as negotiators try and work out a more permanent deal. In a sense it's an agreement to try and reach an agreement. During the six month window, Iran has agreed to stop work on its heavy water reactor, to not add new centrifuges (that's what's used to enrich unranium) and to agree to daily inspections. In return some sanctions are reduced and Iran get's access to $3.6 billion dollars in frozen assets. We discuss the deal.
