William Hague is speaking in the House of Commons on the deal reached by the international community with Iran over its nuclear ambitions.
The Foreign Secretary has listed commitments made by Iran, saying these will prevent Iran from using its program to build nuclear weapons. In return some of the international sanctions will be suspended.
A deal struck after lengthy negotiations in Geneva, Switzerland, commits Iran to curb its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for limited and gradual relief from some sanctions, including access to £2.5 billion ($4.2 billion) from oil sales.
There are "legitimate concerns" about Iran's nuclear programme despite a deal reached with world powers, William Hague has acknowledged.
The Foreign Secretary insisted that the "first step deal" should "give us faith in the power of diplomacy" following a fundamental change in Iran's attitude.
Mr Hague told BBC Radio 4's World This Weekend he understood the scepticism of Israel and Saudi Arabia about Iran's commitment to the process.
"But this is the first time that Iran has entered into an agreement with other nations, with the international community, about what to do about its nuclear programme", he added.
