bans will be lifted in investment oil gas and aviation. iran will retain the right to enrich some uranium but not enough to make a nuclear weapon. we have more from vienna. >> a historic deal, one that the key players here say will limit the threat from a nuclear iran. >> today is an historic day. >> it's an agreement that will further anger opponents who say it's a dangerous and historic mistake. >> iran will get a jackpot of carbo nancy does a of hundreds of billions of dollars which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world. this is a bad mistake of historic proportions. >> it was iran's foreign minister and the most senior e.u. foreign policy official who announced the deal that was sealed after intense
9:03 am
negotiations in the early hours of the morning. >> we are reaching an agreement that is not perfect for anybody but it is what we could accomplish and it is an important achievement for all of us. >> it is a decision that can open the way to a new chapter in international relations and show that diplomacy coordination, cooperation can overcome decades of tensions and confrontations. i think this is a sign of hope for the entire world and we all know that it is very much needed at this time. >> president obama the quick to react, making it clear that if congress tries to block the deal, he will act. >> i am confident that this deal will meet the national security interests of the united states and our allies. i will veto any legislation that prevents the successful implementation of this deal. >> it's not clear if it was coordinated in advance but immediately after the u.s.
9:04 am
president spoke his iranian counterpart followed suit, hailing the deal as a new chapter between iran and the national community. the focus will move across the atlantic to the u.n. security council, expected to ratify the deal as early as next week. >> let's go to james bays. reaching a deal and implementing a deal are not necessarily the same thing. can you put into perspective what may be ahead? >> it is quite a complicated procedure of how this now moves from that today all the way through to actually implementing the deal. the first step that we're going to get is actually at the u.n., at the u.n. security council. that's where the deal is formally ratified. that we believe is going to happen this month. it may happen in as early as a week. it simplies in a deal that the
9:05 am
security council should act promptly. after that, there's 90 days to start the procedure of implementation. when the i.a.e.a. says that implementation has been done by both sides and iran that done the limitations to its nuclear program that make sure according to those that have done this deal this it is a program and the western nations have lifted the sanctions that will be the day that this is properly enforced, the deal is lasting until termination day some send years away, but some of the aspects in the deal, the deal itself is only 10 years last longer than that. >> reporting live from vienna, thank you so much. >> here is more of what u.s. president obama had to say. >> because of this deal, we will for the first time be in a position to verify all of these commitments, that means this deal is not built on trust.
9:06 am
it is built on verification. inspectors will have 24/7 access to iran's key nuclear facilities. actions to rain numb mines mills, conversion facility and its centrifuge manufacturing and storage facilities. this ensures that iran will not divert materials from known facilities to covert ones. some of these transparency measures will be in place for 25 years. because of this deal, inspectors will be able to access any suspicious location. put simply, the organization responsible for the inspections the iaea will have access where necessary, when necessary. that arrangement is permanent. >> u.s. secretary of state john kerry told iranians not to expect the strain caused by international sanctions to end
9:07 am
overnight. >> our quarrel has never been with the iranian people and we realize how deeply the nuclear sanctions have affect their lives. thanks to the agreement reached today, that will begin to change in return for the changes that iran has accepted for its nuclear program, the international community will be lifting the nuclear related sanctions on the iranian economy. relief from sanctions will only start when iran has melt its key nuclear commitments, for example, when it has removed the core from the iraq reactor dismantled the centrifuges it has agreed to dismantle, when it has shipped out the enriched uranium it agreed to. when they do this, the sanctions
9:08 am
will be implemented in intermittent phases. confidence is never built overnight. it has to be developed over time. this morning, foreign minister zarif expressed his hope that this agreement can be a beginning of a change of the interactions between iran and the international community. >> let's get more on the american reaction from washington d.c. president barack obama has said this is about verification. will that do anything to satisfactory his critics? >> there are people against the deal not knowing the details and those saying this is a bad deal for the united states. there are those who haven't read the deal who are saying that this is a bad deal for the united states. barack obama knew there would be
9:09 am
scrutiny in congress of this deal. he knew that for 60 days, congressmen and senators would be able to pull apart every single part of the 107 page agreement. he knew that the some would be advocating that the deal be rejected. what he has said clearly is please look at the deal, understand what's there understand what america is getting out of this deal, but bear in mind, i will veto anything that puts this at risk. very clearly putting his cards on the tail. he knows that congress could pull a deal that says you can't lift sanctions. he will veto that and there isn't enough votes in congress to override that veto. barack obama said this deal is going ahead it's a good deal for the united states, for the middle east, for the world and he will do everything he can to push it forward. >> some skepticism in the united states isn't necessarily strictly along political lines.
9:10 am
there are people within president barack obama's own party that have been skeptical about this deal all along, as well correct? >> there are those who believe that perhaps this is not a good idea and certainly former advisors to barack obama published an open letter saying that this new well helped iran on the path to nuclear weapons. of course at that point no one knew exactly what was in this 107 page document. their view may change, it may not. democrats are saying look, we can't sign up for this deal. when you have 150 congressmen and women who are saying we support the president, we think this is a good idea, we think this blocks all access to a nuclear weapon from iran, he knows he has the votes that will make sure that he can get this act pushed through this deal pushed through, rather than an act. you have to remember of the deep
9:11 am
scars on the american psyche from the iranian hostage crisis, people are aware that for 444 days, 52 americans were held by radical students just after the shaw of iran was deposed that still even now plays on the american psyche in their dealings with iran. they want to make sure that iran can be trusted and they don't trust iran. there's a long way to go for america to teal remotely people with the deal that has been signed in vienna. >> reporting live from washington d.c., thank you. >> russia is a key ally to iran. here is the russian foreign ministers reaction to this agreement. >> with regard to the arms embark go, we along with china call for it to be among the first restriction measures lifted but our iranian colleagues, it was them who had the final say in this matter, agreed to a compromise, because
9:12 am
the west initially insisted on keeping the arms embargo for eight or 10 years. a compromise between the iranians and our western colleagues has been reached which we nationally support along with china bearing in mind that iran was fine with this. within a five year period, arms deliveries to iran are possible. by complying with the procedure of note filing and verification through the u.n. security council. >> we have more on the reaction coming from st. petersburg. >> this deal has been welcomed with vladimir putin saying that the world was not breathe a sigh of relief and that this deal will help combat terrorism in the middle east. he says that the negotiating partners have made a hard choice for stability and cooperation. his foreign minister, sergey lavrov said he hopes arms deliveries to tehran will be possible within the next five years if approved by the u.n. he has been involved in this whole process going back and forth between moscow and
9:13 am
wherever the talks have been taking place pressing for a deal for sanctions to be lifted and that is because russia and iran are allies, good friends they share certain elements of foreign policy and we expect to see cooperation between the two sides increased. of course, if iran comes on to the energy market, that could be competition for russia, but for now at least, i think here in russia, there is relief that this deal has finally been done. >> iran's president said the lifting of the sanctions would have a huge impact on ordinary iranians. this issue saying that iran is at the stage of developing mass destruction weapons from the other side, from the developing,
9:14 am
it was important for our country, for the research and development and while this issue was considered as a dignity for our nation and people and from the economic point of view is that those who sanctioned our country had developed critical situation and difficult situation, as mentioned earlier are never successful, however they had implications on the lives of ordinary people. >> here's what some of those ordinary iranians have been saying. >> every iranian will be happy. they went through a lot over the years. well, i'm happy anyway and i think everyone is happy about it. >> my personal opinion is that i wish they'd done this sooner, so people wouldn't have to go
9:15 am
through all these difficulties. >> a lot of people will be happy. you will have a lot of let's say parties in the street between the young people, but in about four days, they will see that nothing has changed and they have to wait for four, five or six months, so that the deal will start to effect the economy or also affect their life. >> an iranian analyst joins us from tehran. that gentlemen was saying this is going to take sometime for the iranian people to see the actually effects of this deal. how do you see it playing out? >> well, i think firstly that iranians in general see the agreement as a success.
9:16 am
of course, there are problems, economic problems in iran which were caused by the -- would they actually be sanctions structure imposed on iran's economic, but i think well, there will be time until this -- well, agreement will be -- will bear fruit in economic section of iran, because, well, iranians, i think iranians in general are expecting this political agreement to change the economic situation, but i think that the gentleman was right it will take time until the agreement actually will be implemented and then the political dimension of this agreement lead to a change
9:17 am
in the economic situation here in iran. >> is there the political will in iran to stick to this deal? >> i think iranians have -- the will has been there otherwise iran hasn't -- i don't think iran would have involved in this negotiation and get to this deal without the political will that it had. i think they will stick to this. while there will be speculation in iran about the deal, but i think they will stick to it, because they see that this deal is well, a success. it's not something that's bad. it's ran traded transparency for sanction relief, and that trade
9:18 am
is fair in general opinion in iran i think. >> all right. thankthank you very much. >> the reaction from israel is one of anger. prime minister benjamin netanyahu has called the deal a mistake of historic proportions. we are joined now from west jerusalem. obviously the people of israel, is he speaking for them, is this a united voice that feels this way? >> i think now that a deal has been reached i think a lot of israelis are hearing the news and are concerned concerned because for many years now they have been told and heard that iran poses an existential threat to israel. when they see protests held in varsities across iran which
9:19 am
calls for the death of israel and the like, that of course is a concern to many israelis. saying that, this is still a very political issue here in israel between politicians most notably the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. he has been a very vocal critic of iran, taking many opportunities to speak to the world and to powerful governments about the threat that he perceives from iran. earlier this year, he addressed a joint session of the united states congress, speaking specifically about iran. this speech that he gave deeply strained ties with the united states most notably the president, barack obama and the criticism being leveled now here in israel at mr. netanyahu by opposition politicians is that mr. netanyahu took the wrong track, that he was antagonizing in their view mr. obama that in
9:20 am
turn leading mr. obama to pursue this deal even further and therefore agree to certain i guess agreements with iran that he may not have otherwise. there's a lot of anger being directed here in israel at mr. knelt net for not preventing this deal from going ahead. >> the deal has gone ahead. relations are strained. what could the effects be now on this relationship going forward? >> the relationship between president obama and mr. netanyahu is well known to be frosty, to put it mildly, but the fact is, is that on many, many other layers and on many other levels, the relationship between the united states and israel is stronger than it's ever been before. while the two leaders may not exactly see eye to eye the fact of the matter is that this relation is extremely strong. in saying that, the u.s. is
9:21 am
obviously acutely aware of israel's concerns and we understand that it is trying to address those concerns with israel. israel in the past several months has put in a request for additional arms from the united states also part of military support that it receives from the united states. we understand that the u.s. has agreed and we are talking about billions of dollars worth of military equipment, so again as we've been saying, the u.s. is certainly attuned to israel's concerns, but it's clear the white house saw this agreement with iran as more important or at least important enough to pursue it further to the fact that they now have a deal, and one would imagine that they will now try to attempt to try to at least ease some of the israeli concerns, but in the background of all this, as we've been saying israel is certainly concerned. we know the prime minister will be meeting with his security cab knelt in the coming hour. we expect mr. netanyahu to speak again in the coming hour, so it should be interesting to hear
9:22 am
what he has to say now that he's had a chance to digest the agreement. >> live from west jerusalem thank you. >> iran's regional rivals are worried that easing sanctions will give tehran influence to consolidate its influence in the middle east. >> with this historic nuclear agreement, iranians can throw off the decade long chain of sanctions. exports are expected to skyrocket. billions of dollars in trade and investment in sectors such as ail, aviation, technology and housing could be pumped into the iranian economy. >> it's got a huge population, it's got a very able citizenry that can work and be creative and do more than just manual labor. it has a strong regional links and it's got years and years of missed opportunities to make up for. >> it could be a new era for
9:23 am
iran in terms of a reconfigure would role in the region. amidst the sanctions ires influence only grew. currently iran is the main shia power broker in the middle east. the war in yemen it backs the houthis who pushed the president into exile. the president and his allies are drawing support from a saudi-led coalition. >> saudi arabia is iran's primary rival in the region and has been a constant critic of any nuclear deal. >> iran's training and advisor thousands of shia militia fighters in iraq in the battle against isil. in syria it's propping up the government with money weapons and manpower. iran's allies in lebanon the shia armed group hezbollah has sent fighters to the syria front lines. political analysts say if saudi arabia and the gulf cooperation council continue to take a hard
9:24 am
line stance, iran says influence could be contained somewhat. >> it's regional influence will expand vastly in economic fields technological fields, the iranians are very advanced technologically, social and cultural and tourism and education issues, things like that. on the back of that, you will get strong political new relationships. >> now that the u.s. and iran have reached a destand after years of being enemies ires position is expected to shift. >> iraqis were worried that if a
9:25 am
deal was not be met, they would have a chose. they believe they are a staunch ally of iraq and that the americans only really of here because they have a self interest to be here and as soon as they don't need to be here, they'll withdraw. that's always been the problem with the american perception in iraq. look at when they were through in 2011 and the status of forces agreement that never came into place. there's a deal, a hope that there might be increased cooperation between the u.s. and iran when it comes to fighting isil. for a year now the americans and the iranians have been on the same side in iraq fighting isil. iranians on the ground and u.s. with coalition airstrikes. the iraqis hope this paves the way at some point in the future for more cooperation between two sides. the other thing iraqis are looking forward too is the legitimization of the trade they
9:26 am
have which is worth about a billion dollars a year. they'll be looking to increase all of that, there are investment opportunities that both sides will now have on each other's country iran and iraq. an overall sense of relief. we haven't heard from the sunnis or kurds. the kurds are likely to welcome the deal, the sunnis may be a little concerned about what this means in terms of the power brokers within baghdad itself, who are predominantly shia, but these are internal politics that can be dealt with. overall, it has been melt with a real sense of relief. >> thank you so much. al jazeera's senior political analyst joins us from london. how does this affect the balance of power in the region in the middle east? >> in a major way. it's like someone has nuked the old order of the middle east and brought it into whole new world. i think this deal has the power
9:27 am
to reshape alliances and geography of the middle east, of course depending on a number of elements, notably how the u.s. now will exploit the deal, how iran will account loyalty the deal and how others will react to it, of course. all in all this, and i will just add something that foreign minister of iran said earlier this deal is not perfect for anyone. it's important for everyone. i will add it will affect everything in the middle east region. certainly, the saudis now along with a certain arab allies are going to have to consolidate worrying about an emboldened iran. turkey is going to take that under consideration. the deal will put new strains on israeli relations not because the u.s. is no longer supportive
9:28 am
of israel, but certainly the obama administration is trying to decouple the strategic mindsets in order for washington to be able to act freely without israeli dictates or vetoes on its policy in the region, et cetera, et cetera. >> let's talk about the average iranian. we talked about the politics of this, the power players. let's talk about the people. how is this going to affect the average iranian? >> well again this dependency on what the iranian regime is about to do with the $100 billion or so it will receive, what will it do from the wind falls from an increased oil production and the likes. certainly the success of the deal will depend on two things within iran, now that it has the commitment of the president and his foreign minister, it will continue over to a need, a continued blessing of ayatollah
9:29 am
the suction of the economy is important but the decision making is still in the hands of the elites and those elites have among them the militants and so-called molested receipts, have among them the fundamentalists, as well as the liberals. i think it will open the door for a major power struggle within iran. now of course, some in washington hope that this will be a repeat of the late 1980's where gorbachev of the soviet union opened the gates for the new russia and the dissolution of the soviet union. i'm not sure the two are comparable, but there is an understanding this will push for a new momentum within iran that decades of posturing decades of the kind of mill fancy will probably open for something different. what it is exactly is not clear yet. what is clear is that iran is going to be emboldened in the
9:30 am
region and hence the regime might use a good part of the influence in order to expand iran's influence. for many in iran, that's a gooding there. for others, it's not a great thing, because the way iran is intervening in syria in iraq, in yemen is not conducive to good deliberations and that's certainly worrying a lot of its neighbors. >> thank you so much. we've been checking the political pulse in iran. how about the actual climate pulse? i kind of messed that up a little bit. we had something really clever for me to say but take it away, let's talk about the weather in iran. >> if anything, we'll find it cooling off a touch going into next week. cooler weather coming in. we've got rain on the way next week. for now things aren't changed. we've got this cloud around the caspian sea diminishing, bright skies coming in behind it. you can see the sunny weather
9:31 am
across much have the region. 38 celsius in tehran and same as we go into thursday. i think with that temperature around, we might spark off one or two showers but a little more showers in northern parts of iraq and 10 degrees cooler by that stage. across iran through pakistan, west of india still largely dry. across eastern india, we have seen really heavy rain recently. you can see how the cloud has been building, seeing massive downpours. there has been some flooding across eastern india pushing do bangladesh. you can see really deep water coming through here from some really lively downpours so waist high water as you can see. western weather pushing up across the north into nepal some big downpours here once again, cloud and rain making its way into new delhi. by the weekend we might even see a few showers in northern
9:32 am
pakistan. >> thank you. still to come in this news hour, burning anger, greek reaction to the bailout with the e.u., calling it catastrophic and who youhumiliating. >> escaping the fighting, we will bring you these stories. >> a first look at the tournament course, andy will have that story in sport.
9:33 am
9:34 am
>> foreign ministers from iran and six word powers announced a nuclear deal in vienna. in tehran, president rouhani hailed the agreement as a new chapter in relations between iran and the world. it curbs iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions. u.s. president obama said the agreement is based on verification, not trust and warned congress he will veto legislation that prevents successful implementation of the deal. israeli's prime minister bennett has denounced the deal, calling it a bad mistake of historic proportions. he said iran would embark on a sure path that nuclear weapons and get a jackpot worth hundreds of billions of dollars. people in the larger iranian community have been watching closely with mixed feelings, depending on their political views. we met one iranian american who
9:35 am
contraction jokes about the difficult relationship between the two countries. >> i am not dangerous! >> his humor pokes fun at stereotypes and plays for laughs about tensions between iran, the automatic isn't middle east. >> we have a nuclear program ok, but and it is peaceful nuclear program. >> he was born in tehran. his family left in the middle of the islamic revolution and he grew up in california, which has one of the largest iranian american populations in the u.s. >> there's a lot of iranians but there's also a lot of different viewpoints. there's persian jews, persian muslims, there's persian armenians, so there's different
9:36 am
religions, persian you republicans, persian democrats. >> he wrote a book showing how much american popular entertainment gets wrong. >> i'm trying to make fun of how hollywood mixes us up altogether, whether iranian or arab or pakistani and puts us altogether. >> he said many americans believe iranians are untrustworthy. >> we see it with the nuclear talks and different factions saying don't trust the iranians. i think a lot of people here don't trust iranians in general. >> since 1979, the relationship between the u.s. and iran has been bitter and sometimes violent. still, he finds ways to make the situation funny. >> you hear some crazy stuff coming out of iran, crazy stuff coming out of america. there's humor in everything, and sometimes there's more humor than -- i mean, look, when
9:37 am
ahmadinejad and bush were presidents, i mean i didn't have to write jokes, i was just reporting on what either one of them said and it was funny. >> he has a comedy film coming out soon about an iranian immigrant private eye in los angeles. >> i'm jimmy westwood, like clint eastward, but westwood. >> he hopes to bring his stand up comedy routine to tehran, but not anytime soon. >> al jazeera, los angeles. >> to the big story of the week, the greek debt deal, hundreds of anti austerity protestors rallies in athens monday night. the protests were staged by greece's small leftwing anti capitalist and protesting the
9:38 am
syriza party saying it reneged on the pledge to put an end to austerity. >> it's a catastrophic agreement, i expected it. within the euro zone, they are gangsters, financial murderers. there was no way. >> a wretched agreement the greek people voted for something totally different. they are completely ignoring us. they do whatever they want, no matter what we vote for. >> for more on how this deal is playing out on the ground in greece john joins us live from athens. how has this been playing out now that the people of greece have had a few days to try to process this? >> the big fight now is in the parliament, not because there's a plenary session going on. we haven't got there yet. that's supposed to happen tomorrow, but because that's where the parties that are ruling this country have been
9:39 am
meeting, the parliamentary block of the leftwing syriza party and block of the right wing independent greek party. the independent greeks say they will remain in the coalition but will not vote for all of these measures. the coalition partner has already lost in this agreement. syriza itself i also divided. we hear about how many members of parliament my defect in the end. it could be a quarter of the block. the disagreements are over the pension cuts and drawing more money from the economy involves doing things like putting all public transport trains, boats buses, city transport taxis on a 23% v.a.t. tax level. this is coming from a very very low tax level at the moment.
9:40 am
it involves raising tax on self employed and companies from 26% to 29%. all of this on top of the other difficulty that is remain is going to prove i think too much for a lot of people. how are people going to pay 100% of next year's tax up front struggling to pay this year's tax. i think the reactions from the people will come later once measures have passed. we think that the numbers are there ultimately to pass them, but what we see now is that the reactions are coming from the parties themselves, because a lot of m.p.'s don't want to carry this responsibility. >> with the political maneuvering, is it going to pass and if it doesn't then what? >> i think it is going to pass. i think the numbers are there
9:41 am
because the opposition parties the conservatives socialists, the center right will support it. the numbers are there. the question is is this deal implementable. mr. tsipras who gone and signed his name to it in brussels, but can he force it in effect upon the greeks. he's going to have opposition from key unions, the civil service and the public sector unions in general are all going to have a one day strike tomorrow. that is the second time the public sector has expressed itself against the government. this is therefore a new trend. until now the civil service was behind this leftwing government. it felt that the leftists were going to support its salary levels its staffing levels, its benefit levels. that now seems to be in
9:42 am
jeopardy. syriza could be losing a key support there. the young are unhappy. they want growth measures that will reduce unemployment. i think the far left is also going to abandon mr. tsipras. he's going to lose credibility with a chunk of his own party and certainly with the leftwing that lies beyond syriza, so therefore, he's going to have a broader opposition from now on and possibly a narrower support base in the political center. it's going to be difficult sailing, and what people are openly talking about here is a possible reshuffle, as early as this week within the government to remove those ministers who already voted no to saturday's measures and the possibility of elections later on this year. >> all right oh so still a long road ahead for greece. reporting from athens, thank you. >> iraqi forces suffered heavy losses after launching a new offensive against isil. at least 81 soldiers and pro government fighters have been
9:43 am
killed during attacks in and around fallujah. isil targeted military positions and residential areas. shia fighters and sunni tribesman and government forces are involved to recapture anbar's province rimadi. >> nearly 15,000 people have been killed in iraq during the 16 month period to the end of april of this year. it adds that 30,000 others have also been injured. more than 20,000 people have south ref final in a mike shift camp. >> this used to be iraq's nicest holiday resort. less than an hour's drive from baghdad, a generation of iraqis holidayed at the city after it was built in the 1980's. with fighting in anbar province

9:45 am
nicest hotel little in the middle east. a lot of the people who are here now, who have taken ref final here used to come on vacation. >> the former five star hoe tell is now six stories of misery. most of its residents are from fallujah. they've lived here for more than a year without electricity or running water. sewage leaks on to the roof. hasam's family came 18 months ago when his shop was destroyed. when he has money he pace for pure from a generator. when his children get sick from the dirty water, there is no medical care. >> there was no other place we could go. there are people who have dollars, they go to erbil or outside iraq. they don't nope what it's like. only the poor who can't find any other place come here. >> the latist arrivals are worse off. this family walked seven hours through the desert after mortar
9:46 am
bombs hit. there is only one mattress. everything here is so expensive they rely on charity for food. it's when he recalled happy memories with his friends that he breaks down. all of that is gone, he says. he says in other countries people dream of big achievements. iraqis just dream of security, but security has been elusive. it is a painful reminder of how quickly things fall apart. al jazeera iraq. >> the u.n. says the civilian death toll during three months of war in yemen is now more than 1600. the fighting continues on the ground. forces loyal to president hadi captured the international airport from rebels and have taken over the cities police headquarters. aden has seen heavy fighting
