With less than two weeks remaining before the June 30 nuclear deadline, the progress between the six world powers (known as the p5+1; the United States, United Kingdom, China, France, Russia, plus Germany) and the Islamic Republic appears to be on the rise and auspicious for the involved parties.
On the one hand, for President Obama, the nuclear deal is a matter of his lifetime's legacy. For Iranian leaders, on the other hand, the nuclear agreement is a crucial business deal and an economic gain that will boost Iran’s military, and geopolitical influence in the region as well as ensure the hold-on-power of the Iranian government.
Considering all of the political capital that has being spent in the last 18 months of the nuclear talks, the two sides (particularly the United States and the Islamic Republic) appear to hold significant political willingness to brush aside unanswered questions and concerns in order to reach this so-called “historic” final nuclear deal.
Hurdles will not stop the deal
