In a rare Sunday statement, President Barack Obama hailed Iran's release of American prisoners and defended diplomacy with Tehran, including last year's nuclear accord that reached a critical milestone Saturday. VOA's Michael Bowman reports, the president spoke from the White House shortly after the US imposed new sanctions on Iran for ballistic missile tests.
