foreign correspondent terry moran, years in the making 17 years of negotiations in austria. the big question is how much will it restrict iran's nuclear ability to build a nuclear weapon and for how long? >> reporter: well, george that is of course the key question from the united states perspective. and from the united states team they are saying that it will take ten years at least for the -- for iran to develop capability under this agreement. to continue its progress towards a nuclear weapon. what they've got, tough inspection regime for at least ten years. as they have essentially eyes on the entire fuel cycle of the iranian nuclear program. and they say they have enhanced inspectors' abilities to gain access to military sites and other sensitive sites in iran. that is really the key for the united states. for iran the key is lifting the sanctions that have crippled the

3:04 am
go on the open market and buy ballistic missiles buy conventional arms and they will have billions of dollars more to do so because their economy will be moving again thanks to lifting of the economic sanctions. you'll hear members of congress in both parties raise loud objections to this. the answer from the white house is we just struck a historic deal that pre-empted war with iran. this was the best chance to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. this is a good deal. >> and john president obama is working on this from the very beginning of his presidency. >> reporter: yes, in fact if you remember back when running in the democratic primary in 2008 against hillary clinton, he said he would open negotiations with iran. he has done this. this is a major legacy moment for the president. this will be his signature in the national foreign policy achievement and warn they are very proud here at the white house. >> john karl thank you very much. we'll hear from you on "gma" and martha raddick. we'll have more from the
