Iran nuclear deal a step for 'peace'

Iran's vice-president has described her country's recent nuclear deal as "a step for the future for peace not only in the region, but at a global level".

Masoumeh Ebtekar told the BBC that the agreement gave reformers like President Rouhani leverage over other political groups in Iran.

She was speaking to the BBC's Kim Ghattas, who has spent the last week in Iran - the longest period a BBC correspondent has been granted permission to report in Iran since 2009.
