What you Need to Know About the Iran Nuclear Deal
Iran has agreed to slow some of its nuclear activities in return for about $7 billion in sanctions relief after days of debate in Geneva from the six world powers. Major points of the compromise include Iran will stop enriching uranium beyond 5% and "neutralize" its stockpile enriched beyond this point, Iran will give greater access to inspectors at nuclear sites, and there will be no further development of the Arak plan, which is believed to produce plutonium; in return, there will be no new nuclear-related sanctions for six months and Iran will receive sanctions relief. The deal was brokered to hinder the development of a potential nuclear bomb, which world powers believe is Iran's hidden ambition. Israel has made it clear that they think the agreement is a "historic mistake."
