2:04 pm
hours of the morning were about lifting u.n. sanctions. the most controversial compromises were the decision that the arms embargo on iran could be lifted within five years and the restriction on the country's ballistic missiles in eight years with the u.s. congress starting its 60-day review you can expect these once again will be the most scrutinized parts of this deal james base al jazeera, vienna. the deal has been a contentious issue in iran and welcoming the lifting of sanctions and others see it as giving into western demands and erica wood has more. >> reporter: iran's capitol the newspaper's front pages are all centered rounds the nuclear negotiations and after years of tough sanctions people say they are happy to see an end to their economic problems. >> translator: every iranian will be happy, they went through a lot over the years and i'm
2:05 pm
happy anyway. >> translator: my personal opinion is i wish they had done this sooner so people wouldn't have to go through all these difficulties. >> translator: for sure it's a good feeling. moving sanctions that put a lot of pressure on our country and maybe people would say everything is okay but you can see the effects on people. >> reporter: not everyone shares their positive approach. the negotiations dragged on for a reason there are some in iran who take a much harder line and they consider the nuclear issue a matter of sovereignty, a right they insist they should be able to pursue without outside interference and it's what they had to handle carefully here at home and internationally. when he ran for the president in 2013 rohani vowed to negotiate an end to the sanctions that were hurting the iranian people but he also promised not to crumble in the face of western demands. there will be a lot of
2:06 pm
discussion from inside iran now this deal is done but it has support from the very top because as with any major political decision in iran nothing goes ahead without the approval of the support leader ali. >> there will be important about the deal but i think they will stick to it because they see that this deal is the it exists and it's not something that is bad, iran traded transparency for sanction relief and that trade is fair in general opinion in iran. >> reporter: the chief negotiator conceded this was not a perfect deal but iran has managed to maintain its position as a tough negotiating partner and help the economy in the process. erica woods al jazeera. >> i'm joined by the former
2:07 pm
iranian military of culture and thank you for coming to talk to us on al jazeera and you are a former minister and how will the iranian ministers be digesting this deal now? >> it's great for me because the great deal is about resolving the problem and also resorting to unnecessary crisis as a political issue because they are based on all the culture and social things in iran for instance i remember that in the culture when i was in the time about 20,000 books, titles were publishing every year at that time. and so when we are facing the sanction so you have a problem of printing the books and problems of cinema and music and
2:08 pm
for things like that. i don't want to mention for instance the problems involved with medicine and involved passenger planes and something like that so it is i think a great deal and also the great hope as the nation and government. >> it was mentioned in passing the role of an supreme leader and he has not said anything about the deal but we understand he would have backed it how critical is that and how different is that from the approach that it has been in the past? >> i think more are actually supporting the deal because i think iran they had the deal and negotiation and we are supporting and backing it and it's impossible for every government and foreign minister and his team to promote his deal. because of that i think this is a new era. this is maybe i can say that
2:09 pm
this is a new hope in iran that we are facing a very very close relationship between the president and leader. >> and obviously the relationship with the west might change to an extent because of this if it all falls into place but what about the region because there has been quite a lot of skepticism in the region what do you think the relationship will be with iran and the near neighbors. >> the international council gets two faces of the coin and sometimes the face is supporting i think each other. i think today is the end of the iran phobia and it means that iran is not dangerous country. iran is not the center of the problem in our region. iran is a country that i think shoulder to shoulder of the u.s. >> not iran but israel reacted
2:10 pm
and said the world is a more dangerous place because of this today and the security cabinet there has rejected the deal and said israel is not committed to abide by it statement from the prime minister's office and what do you think that means? >> i think taking into situation that netanyahu is prime minister of israel and terms for instance he used some strange terms and says bonanza and jackpot for iran and this is a gamble. i think every irania knows the assets and banks in europe and usa, these are the iranian assets belonging to the iranian nation as a country and government and we can use bonanza and jackpot and crazy, that is fun. i think this is a problem and i
2:11 pm
think that even in israel when they promote the perspective of the security personnel and also the military person they do them actually with netanyahu. >> if this is implemented on the economy and you mentioned some sanctions that hit in the past when you were as a minister shortages of certain things, how quickly do you think the economy could pick up as a result of lifting the sanctions? >> i think we are facing leaving all the sanctions and means this is a new era and i think this is in energy and for instance there and when you have problem in for instance passenger's plane, you have passenger planes and the facilities for doing this job well so it's a problem. i told you, last question we had a problem in medicine for instance some iranian children
2:12 pm
died because of the lack of the medicine in our country so it means i think this is a new capacitor in the relation with iran and usa and this is a new chapter that all the countries or usa and all the countries meet in the region and i believe it's been iran. this p plus 5 or 51 and all of them they can solve the problem and iran and all the neighbors if they have a problem, i think they can solve the problem. >> we will leave it there, thank you very much indeed. >> my pleasure. u.s. president barack obama is making his case to the american people that he got the best deal possible with iran and his work doesn't stop there, as al jazeera's patty reports now he has to convince congress to go along with it too. >> reporter: americans woke up to an unusual early morning
2:13 pm
address from u.s. president barack obama detailing specifics of the deal for the public and sendsingly a warning to the u.s. congress. >> precisely because the stakes are so high this is not the time for politics or posturing and tough talk from washington does not solve problems. >> they have 60 days for the deal and would need members of the president's party to go against him to stop lifting u.s. sanctions and seechls unlikely now after one of the most powerful candidates hillary clinton endorsed the deal. >> based on what i know and i will be briefed as soon as i finish addressing you, this is an important step in putting the lid on iran's nuclear program. >> reporter: they intend to put up a fight. >> billions in relief while paving a way for a nuclear iran.
2:14 pm
this is not about democrats and republicans and it's not a partisan issue at all, it's about right versus wrong and we will do everything i can to get to the details and if, in fact, it's as bad of a deal as i think it is at this moment we will do what we can to stop it. >> reporter: in washington they are expected to push hard in progress of the deal and lifting of u.s. sanctions but even opponents say it will be difficult to scuffle this landmark agreement. >> it would be a transformative event in the middle east if you like it or dislike it if you support or deplore the sorts of changes it will set in motion it is a very big entry in president obama's legacy book. >> reporter: a win for the president's legacy, now he just has to convince the secretary and congress it's a win for
2:15 pm
national security as well. patty al jazeera, washington. >> with action and there is efforts to convince a congress and get this through and it started already. >> you do get the sense and of course there are a few people who are saying this is a bad deal and lindsey graham saying this is akin to declaring war on israel but the majority kind of understands that it's probably a bad idea to come out emphatic emphatically to vote against them before it arrives and before the 60-day review process has begun and seen the effect of benjamin netanyahu's result and knee-jerk in public establishments lately and let's have the 60 day review take place and look at things carefully and once that review period does begin in the next five days we expect hearings and
2:16 pm
testimony from the obama administration and other expects and they have a recess in august and then they come back in september and they will vote and they could win that and needs simple majority to win that and it becomes complicated and if that happens he will veto and the hawks in congress need two thirds to vote against the president and that is what seems so unlikely and it's important to under line the.patty made of what can congress do about this deal this is not a deal but an international deal and p 5 plus 1 and iran and they cannot stop in congress president obama from sending ambassador to u.n. security council now and helping pass a new resolution that enshines the details and lifts sanctions on iran and all they
2:17 pm
can do is keep natural secondary sanctions on the u.s. and iran and that raises other questions does the u.s. want to isolate it from the rest of the world as iran and the rest of the world are opening it up each other and raises questions about commercial interests which have clout on capitol hill dying to get in. >> negative reaction as we have heard from israel so obama has now spoken to netanyahu and agreed to send the defense secretary there and how does that work in to reassuring them? >> president obama says we have to know we are closer than ever with security relations and he has been close sending billions of weaponry and so on and subsidizing various maneuvers and little criticism of the assault on gaza and so on but prime minister netanyahu seems
2:18 pm
to have lost out some interesting, when it comes to iran at the very least here it's fascinating to watch the mainstream media on capitol hill or television and they are questioning the spokesperson and corrects him when he talks about what the deal entails and do not see that very often and netanyahu has been blunted in washington and even apac can right wing israeli lobby issued a statement and expressed concerns but didn't immediately say we have to make sure this is voted against in congress. >> thank you very much. go out later in the news hour campaign to discuss young british girls training from iraq and syria to john i.s.i.l. and the quake to rebuild after the earthquake. tens of thousands to welcome the star player home after this

2:30 pm
story now and the deal with iran brought a swift reaction from israel with prime minister benjamin netanyahu calling it a historic mistake and we report from west jerusalem. >> reporter: hours before iran's nuclear deal with global powers was formally announced israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu made an announcement denouncing the agreement. >> this is a bad mistake of historical proportions. >> reporter: he then made a second address later in the day after reviewing the deal and his criticisms were even more pointed. >> the world is a much more dangerous place today than it was yesterday. >> netanyahu is under increasing pressure by opposition politicians at home who blame him for failing to prevent the deal and accuse the prime minister of straining ties with u.s. president barack obama which they say harmed israel's ability to influence the outcome. >> after say ten years obama
2:31 pm
will not be the president, nobody knows who is going to be the president, probably two or three presidents will be in place with each other in the period of time and to what they are committed on if you try to go nuclear, we don't know. >> reporter: in west jerusalem israelis were nearly universal in their criticism of the nuclear deal. >> now they will get all this money and fund even more terrorism and it's made everything so bad. >> iran just like north korea cannot be trusted and i hope that the u.s. congress the house of representatives and the senate will go over this agreement very carefully. >> reporter: the united states congress has 60 days to review the agreement, netanyahu will likely use that time to pressure his political allies in the republican party and president obama said he will veto any bill
2:32 pm
that will block the deal. the agreement between iran and global powers has achieved a rare show of political consensus here in israel. politicians from across the spectrum have criticized the deal saying any kind of iranian nuclear program poses a threat but with the accord all but certain to hold there is very little they can do about it. al jazeera, west jerusalem. sanctions have had a huge impact on iran's oil industry over the last four years and consider the european alone it went from 600,000 barrels of oil a day from tehran to zero but the return says it may be simple and takes a look at why. >> reporter: remember the westerns with oil gushing out of the ground uncontrolled with chaos all around and think of that as a metaphor for what
2:33 pm
could happen when iran reenters the global oil market and we have 30 million barrels of iran oil ready to go it is sitting in the iranian fleet of super tankers waiting for sanctions to lift and oil production cranks up again, perhaps up to 2 1/2 million barrels a day it was selling back in 2011 then what happens? >> so generally a million barrels is expected to come back on the market once sanctions permit it to. that time period and how quickly that comes back on is the question and generally it's acknowledged between six months and 12 months from a production point of view but of course they have a lot of oil in storage which could immediately come on the market and the expectation and once the sanctions are agreed that exports can reconvene prices could see a downward pressure again because of this extra supply unless saudi arabia or other major produces in opec for example
2:34 pm
facilitate the return of iran by pulling back some of their production or elbow we could see a wave of downward pressure on the oil prices. >> low oil says it will put pressure on shale producers in the u.s. that are taking away their business but for iran if prices are low any increase in revenue will be welcome and since 2012 iran lost $160 billion in oil revenues the entire economy is contracted around 20% since before the sanctions and $80 billion in foreign currency that has been inaccessible and frozen by banks that are adhering to sanctions and it used to makeup 20% with the fourth largest reserves in the world and the deal in vienna is the difference between more economic pain or potential pros prosperity. >> reporter: there are pictures from tehran's square and a small
2:35 pm
celebration which broke out after news of a deal came through and bigger gatherings are expected later on to take place in iran as news of this deal is well received in some quarters at least. in the studio is al jazeera senior politicalist and it's a region in crisis isn't it and yemen, syria, iraq. >> to say the least. >> so how will this deal with iran play into that? >> well certainly iran is going to be able to take advantage of the strategic vote in the region and the chaos that is basically disabling everyone. the only party that is coming up, pretty strong out of a fresh deal with new normalized relations and possibly a huge commercial profit is iran and iran has been over the last few years despite the sanctions capable of influencing many of its neighbors including iraq
2:36 pm
syria, lebanon, so on and so forth. certainly an emboldened iran is already worrying many of the arab neighbors and some think it will continue with the same mine set and others hope it will use the new opportunity with the west to perhaps find middle way with the americans, this all remains to be seen. >> also in reaction in the last hour or so we've had russia sergei fedorov says it's against i.s.i.l. and do you think this is something that could emerge from this? >> it was reported in "the wall street journal" this conversation that took place between president obama and president rohani and the letter sent by president obama to iotolo and basically the idea was we need to mend fences in order to cooperate on the likes of i.s.i.l. my idea is we will be seeing
2:37 pm
slowly the facing out of iran in the boogie-man and phasing in of i.s.i.l. and for viewers around the world, for five six decades every ten years washington and the western journal had the boogie man in the region and then it was the egypt and farahat and iotola and saddam hussein and osample maybin-laden and now we go to baghdad and i.s.i.l. >> in that different shifting alliances what about the relationship with the near neighbors? a saudi official said good will and talked about sour grapes so there is a degree of suspicion. >> the world in general are happy that iran's nuclear
2:38 pm
program has been verifiably limited to civilian development. but everyone is worried about what the rest of the deal means in terms of the strategic opening for iran. we all know that saudi arabia and iran do not have good relations and they reflect major distress for a long long time and the policy especially in yemen and more importantly in iraq and syria created a lot of suspicion among soldiers and others and if they can consolidate an arab position, to be able to talk with iran on equal basis in order to reach some sort of mode in the region i think that would be certainly the desired path forward. >> israel made it clear they don't like the deal and said it today and not committed to abide by it by the security cabinet and we had obama on the phone to
2:39 pm
netanyahu saying the relationship is good and we are sending ash carter where does this deal leave israel? >> he is not convinced by president obama's argument that he told him that this deal threatens security. generally speaking in the media we talk about israel and the moderate arabs not happy with iran but there is really a big difference between the moderate arabs or the arabs and israel and for two reasons because israel is a power with 100-200 nuclear war heads and the only nuclear power in the middle east. two israel occupies the neighbors and iran may interfere in it but doesn't occupy the neighbor. israel is unoccupying power and it has been so 40 more years. so in so many ways israel is not really in a position to accuse the united states and the west of capitulating to iran when the entire world is saying look we have a verified agreement that
