Many Iranians celebrated publicly and privately the announcement of a preliminary agreement in Lausanne that could lead to a permanent nuclear deal that would curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
Sanctions imposed on Iran have made life more difficult for ordinary Iranians who are hoping that a permanent nuclear deal will lead to a better economy, more work opportunities, and better ties with the world.
Amateur videos posted online and images by citizens and news agencies showed people honking and celebrating late into the night in Tehran.
