U.S. President Barack Obama spoke on Friday with the leaders of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to share details on the framework agreement reached with Iran, the White House said in a statement, according to Reuters news agency.
Obama also invited the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council to meet with him at Camp David this spring to discuss the tentative deal.
On Thursday, Iran and the P5+1 reached what Obama called a “historic understanding” that, if followed, would prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb.
Under the framework, Iran agreed to sharply curtail its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions that have crippled the country’s economy.
The main outlines agreed after eight days of talks that sometimes went through the night in the Swiss city of Lausanne now have to be finalized in a highly complex agreement by June 30.
Following the agreement, Obama had called Saudi Arabia’s King Salman to discuss the deal the United States and international negotiators reached with Iran.
During the phone call, King Salman said he hoped to reach a final deal and mandatory accord that would aid in developing regional and international security.
