Kerry: This is the good deal we sought

US Secretary of State John Kerry says the Iran deal he spent the last 19 days negotiating in Vienna is “the good deal that we sought.”

“We were determined to get this right and I believe our persistence paid off,” Kerry tells reporters at a news conference in Vienna, adding that the agreement marked a historic day.

On crutches and still nursing a broken leg, Kerry also jokes that Tuesday was a historic day for him personally because it was the first time in six weeks he had worn a pair of shoes.
