WASHINGTON (AP) -President Barack Obama is defending a framework nuclear agreement with Iran, saying it's a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" to prevent a bomb and bring longer-term stability to the Middle East.

Obama also tells The New York Times that it's "personally difficult" for him to hear his administration accused of not looking out for Israel's interests.

The White House plans an aggressive campaign to sell the deal to Congress, as well as to skeptical Arab allies who worry about Iran's destabilizing activity in the region.
