I spoke for more than 10 minutes last night with Monocle 24 Radio about the state of Iran's relations with China.
The starting point was this week's cancellation by Iran of a $2 billion contract for China to build a dam, but discussion soon widened to Iran-Chinese relations, the effects of sanctions, and the state of the Iranian economy, including the role of the Revolutionary Guards.
To get to the discussion:

3. Select the programme for 31 May.
4. The item is at the start of the programme, after the 30-second Monocle 24 identification.
