The US secretary of state has said the deal reached on Sunday over Iran's nuclear programme will make Israel and the Middle East a safer place.

John Kerry was speaking after Iran agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities in return for about 7 billion dollars in sanctions relief.

However, Israel has described the agreement as a "historic mistake".

Iran's president said its right to uranium enrichment had been recognised, but Kerry denied this.

Tehran has, however, agreed to stop all enrichment above 5%.
