President Obama to speak about Iran deal from White House Saturday night

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will make a statement Saturday night on the Iran nuclear agreement from the White House.

Obama will speak shortly after the U.S. and its negotiating partners reached an agreement with Iran. The deal was finalized during talks in Geneva that stretched well past midnight.

The interim deal is aimed at slowing progress on Iran's nuclear program while a broader agreement is negotiated.

As part of the interim agreement, the U.S. offered the Iranians limited relief from crippling economic sanctions.
