(Associated Press)  -  Members of Massachusetts' all-Democratic congressional delegation are hailing a deal struck between the U.S. and other world powers and Iran.

The accord is intended to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions. Congress has 60 days to review the deal.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said diplomacy is the best way to end the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. She said she looks forward to reviewing the agreement to see if it's ``tough, verifiable, and effective.''

Sen. Edward Markey _ who holds Secretary of State John Kerry's old Senate seat _ praised Kerry's work hammering out the deal. Markey said he wants to ensure the agreement allows for tough inspections.

U.S. Reps. Katherine Clark and Joe Kennedy also praised the agreement, but said they wanted time to review it.
