Obama Says Benefits Of Iranian Nuke Deal 'Undeniable'

U.S. President Barack Obama has said the benefits of the Iranian nuclear deal are "undeniable" although it may still take time for people to begin enjoying them.

Obama said the deal made it possible for Iran to rejoin the global economy through increased trade and investment, creating jobs and opportunities for Iranians to sell their goods around the world.

Obama said the United States still had "profound differences" with Iran, but he noted the fact that the countries are talking regularly for the first time in decades could help solve them.

Obama addressed the Iranian people in his annual video message marking Norouz, the Persian New Year.

Citing his trip on March 20 to Cuba, the U.S. leader said it's possible for old adversaries to start down a new path after decades of mistrust.
