On GPS Sunday: A rare interview with Iran's ambassador to the United Nations

"Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

Why does Iran think nuclear talks have reached a “turning point”? Fareed sits down for a rare and exclusive interview with Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaee.

Also, sequestration has just kicked in for the United States. But what does it really mean, and what impact will it have? Fareed hears from a panel including Zanny Minton Beddoes, economics editor of The Economist, New York Times Washington bureau chief David Leonhardt and former top Treasury official Roger Altman.

“We’ve now got tons of evidence that austerity does not work after a financial crisis,” Leonhardt says. “It's really remarkable to see that the United States has now been cutting government employment over the last few years, something it did not do in the ’80s during the Reagan years or the ’90s or the ’00s.”

And in What in the World – why one world leader refuses to watch an Oscar-nominated film that was made in his own country.

    The Jewish state has ICBM nukes and openly threatens Iran, actually campaigns for war against Iran. Israel, not Iran, is the warmonger. Resolution lies with lifting all sanctions and compensating Iran for damages from the $$$ billions we will no longer be giving the Jewish state. An Iran with nukes would disrupt the Jewish state's brutish pursuit of invulnerability, territorial conquest and apartheid empire. Mutually assured destruction might actually make Mideast peace possible.
