Iran calls closure of UN nuclear arms probe a 'big success'

So does Obama.
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that the U.N. nuclear agency's decision to close the books on a decade-long probe of allegations that Tehran worked on nuclear weapons is a "big success."

He hailed the decision as a "moral, political and legal victory" in a televised address, saying it paved the way for Iran to fulfill its remaining obligations under a nuclear deal with world powers. The probe had to be formally ended as part of the historic agreement, which will lift sanctions in return for Iran curbing its nuclear activities.
