Deadline Approaches On Iran's Nuclear Program

Download Audio

A November deadline is approaching on a nuclear agreement with Iran. For the West, the agreement is aimed at preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

So far, the negotiations have failed to broker a deal, and there may be a move to extend the deadline. The talks come as a U.S.-led coalition fights the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Does that complicate the nuclear talks? The Islamic State is also Iran's enemy.

Security expert Jim Walsh discusses the nuclear talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson.
