About this Episode

As negotiations continue over six months to reach a comprehensive agreement, Empire tracks how Iran-US relations became mired in ideological hostility and the more recent diplomatic impasse over suspicion – at times alarmist – that Iran has been covertly working on a nuclear bomb, while Tehran insists its nuclear energy ambitions are peaceful. As sanctions on Iran have increased, so too have the technical capabilities of the country's nuclear program.

We examine the agreement and its ramifications through Iran and the US: Diplomatic enrichment, Empire uncovers the complexities and big questions that lie ahead.
