Perceptions of US-Iran Relations



When many Americans think of Iran, they picture a nuclear threat led by an unhinged and hateful president. Secretary of State John Kerry has described diplomacy with Iran as a “painful task,” but with its rich culture, universities and almost 75 million citizens, Iran is much more than its nuclear problem. This hour of All Sides will explore the Iran that’s overshadowed, and its complex relationship with the US.
