A landmark deal has been signed to curb Iran's nuclear programme.
 
The breakthrough was reached after months of talks between Tehran and the so-called P5+1 nations, that's the US, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
 
Under the deal, some economic sanctions will be lifted, once Iran abides by commitments to curtail its nuclear activity.
 
There is also agreement over nuclear inspections but the lifting of an arms embargo has been delayed.
 
The deal caps more than a decade of negotiations.
 
And it has been broadly welcomed, but Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a 'bad mistake of historic proportions.'
 
So what effect will it have on the political landscape of the Middle East?
 
And how will it shape Iran’s foreign relations?
