Iran's land is gifted with oil. Iran produces the 4th largest amount of oil in the world. Iran plays a huge part in oil industry. They export oil to other countries all around the world and that affects a lot of people including us all the way in the US.

Effect: Both sides (the West and Iran) are not coming to an agreement. Riots around and in Iran, either agreeing or disagreeing with President Rouhani. The West are hoping to negotiate and some people in Iran do not want that while others are totally up for it.
