Global Smackdown Wrap-Up: Iran

“[The statement made by Iran] also has to do with the UN Security Council and the shifting power dynamics within the UN Security Council.”

This week Dr. Tim Horner takes the time to talk about Iran and the Iran nuclear deal. The recent developments from the UN general assembly reveal the growing tension between Iran and the United States, as well as the United States’s changing standing in the world. Dr. Horner also touches on how Iran has been getting around some of the sanctions through help of other key, powerful countries.
