Mark Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of IISS–Americas, discusses the Iran nuclear deal at this years IISS Manama Dialogue. He notes that although President-elect Donald Trump has spoken harshly about the deal, he will be smart enough not to rip it up first – he'll put pressure on Iran, and then see how it responds.
