US President Barack Obama has spoken by phone to Irans Hassan Rouhani - the first such top-level conversation in more than 30 years.

 

Obama spoke of a "unique opportunity" to make progress with Irans new leadership, amid a flurry of diplomacy over its nuclear programme.

 

Earlier, Rouhani said Iran was keen to reach a deal soon.

 

He also asserted that Iran did not seek a nuclear bomb, as Western powers have long suspected.
