Obama: Iran follows "letter," but not always spirit, of nuke deal

US President Barack Obama says that while Iran has followed the letter of the nuclear agreement reached last year with the P5+1, it actions sometimes run counter to the spirit of the deal.

Asked about Iranian complaints that the international business community has been slow to invest since the nuclear pact, Obama says Iran must demonstrate to investors that the country is "a safe place to do business."

Obama pointed to a "range of provocative actions" by Iran, such as ballistic missile tests with anti-Israeli slogans, and missile shipments to Hezbollah, which make potential investors "nervous."
