Iran's top leader thanks his negotiators for nuclear deal

Posted:

Iran's state TV says the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has expressed his gratitude to Iranian negotiating team for concluding the deal with world powers in Vienna over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.


   The report late Tuesday says Khamenei voiced his "appreciation and thanked the Iranian nuclear negotiators for their honest and diligent efforts."


   It says Khamenei made the remarks during a meeting with President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Cabinet members.


   Tehran and six world powers reached the landmark deal earlier in the day. The deal is meant to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
