Democracy Now: Trita Parsi: If Ban Is How Trump Approaches Iran, We Fear Nuclear Deal Won’t Withstand Tensions

” One of the good things that came out of the nuclear deal is that suddenly Americans could travel to Iran, and there could be more connections between peoples. If there were more connections between the people and they got to know each other better, that would create a buffer against any effort to escalate the tensions between the United States towards a military confrontation. Now that may once again be reversed. And one thing that is worrying a lot of people is that if this is a first sign of how the Trump administration will be approaching Iran, then the fear is that the tensions will not be able—the nuclear deal will not be able to withstand all of these tensions” said Trita Parsi of the National Iranian American Council.
