Host Carol Castiel and senior broadcaster in VOA’s Persian Service, Siamak Deghanpour, talk with author and Iran specialist, Hussein Banai, about the internal and external challenges facing the Iran’s new hardline administration led by President Ebrahim Raisi. Banai also discusses the need for the Biden Administration, which wants to revive the nuclear deal (JCPOA) from which the Trump administration withdrew, to design a wholistic policy toward the Islamic Republic which addresses not just the nuclear file, ballistic missiles, and malign regional activities, but also Tehran’s dismal record on democracy and human rights.
