President Obama emphasized with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep this week that this nuclear framework agreement with Iran is a good deal. The merit of the deal doesn’t have to depend on Iran changing its foreign policy, or becoming more culturally in tune with the United States, it just has to keep the country from building a nuclear weapon.

Inskeep tells Here & Now's Robin Young that if an opening up of Iran to the world is what happens over time because of a nuclear deal, that would be a benefit to all, but in defending this nuclear deal, Obama said that was not the point.
