Following days of negotiations in Geneva with six world powers, Iran has agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities in return for limited sanctions relief. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Iran experts provide analysis:

# FLASH ANALYSIS: Mardo Soghom, Regional Director for Iran and Iraq, assesses the six-month agreement and what’s next for the country.

# After years of stalemate, finally a deal. But, as Senior Correspondent Golnaz Esfandiari reports, much work remains to be done to work out a permanent deal. (Listen to Esfandiari discuss the deal on KQED.)

# Esfandiari also reports that the agreement was fittingly announced on Twitter, as social media has been among the primary sources of information for tech-savvy young Iranians following news about the talks.  

# Iranians have generally welcomed the country’s interim nuclear deal, although some conservatives still remain skeptical about the outcome. Radio Farda and RFE/RL’s Central Newsroom report.
