Iran’s president signaled he would rejoin the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) if President-Elect Biden signs on after taking office. The Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft’s Trita Parsi and the Atlantic Council’s Barbara Slavin join Deep Dish to explain why Biden must focus on improving relations between the two countries, not just renewing the agreement.
