A framework agreement aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear drive was agreed on Thursday after lengthy talks in Switzerland, many saw this as a land-mark breakthrough after a 12-year standoff between Iran and the West, which has long harboured fears regarding Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Saudi Gulf partners Oman and Bahrain also welcomed Thursday’s deal reached in Lausanne.

Obama said on Thursday that he had invited the Gulf leaders to Camp David for discussions on further security cooperation in the region.
