US Secretary of State John Kerry said Iran's agreement to curb some of its nuclear activities in return for about $7bn (£4.3bn) would make the region safer for its allies, including Israel.

The deal will last for six months, while a permanent agreement is sought.

Speaking to George Stephanolpoulus on ABC's This Week programme, Mr Kerry said that the 'next step' would be "negotiating the dismantling" of Iran's nuclear programme.
