An historic nuclear deal has been stuck between Iran and six world powers.
The deal which came after 18 days of negotiations in Vienna will keep Iran from producing enough material for a nuclear weapon for at least 10 years and impose new provisions for inspections of Iranian facilities, including military sites.
In return, Iran will receive billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions.
Reaction to the deal has been varied with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani saying that the deal marks “a new chapter” in relations between his country and the world, while the Iranian foreign minister says the deal in “not perfect” but still a win win.
The US are also welcoming the deal with Secretary of State John Kerry, who is in Vienna saying that it is the “good deal that we sought” adding that persistence paid off in the end.
Israel on the other hand has been swift in it’s condemnation.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deal is a “bad mistake of historic proportions”, adding that it would enable Iran to “continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region.”
The country has warned that it could take military action on its own, if necessary.
