Nuclear talks: 'Historic understanding' with Iran reached

  • Six world powers and Iran have reached an outline agreement on the contentious Iranian nuclear program after talks in Switzerland. 

    According to the agreement, Iran will cut down its capacity to enrich uranium and will get relief from sanctions in return. However, the detailed fine print of the deal still has to be worked out, and will take a few months.

    Barack Obama, the US president, hailed the deal as a “historic understanding” with Iran, and celebrations broke out in Tehran as news of the agreement was telecast.
