Iran nuclear deal

A landmark deal between Iran and world powers to curb Tehran's nuclear program in return for some sanctions relief was reached on Nov. 24.  The accord struck between the Islamic Republic and the United States, France, Germany, China, Russia and Britain is seen as a first step towards resolving a decade-old dispute that has stirred fears of a new Middle East war.  Israel, believed to be the region's only nuclear-armed state, has denounced the deal as an "historic mistake" since it does not dismantle its arch foe's uranium enrichment program. The implementation of the agreement is expected to start by early January.
