Iran nuclear: Barack Obama praises diplomacy

US President Barack Obama has hailed the diplomatic efforts that led to Iran agreeing a deal to curb some of its nuclear activities for six months.

Mr Obama said: "For the first time in a decade we have halted the progress on Iran's nuclear programme."

"Tough talk and bluster might be the easy thing to do politically but it is not the right thing for our security," he added.
