Israel is pleased at a compromise deal achieved between the United States Congress and the administration of US President Barack Obama, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz said on Wednesday.

"We are certainly happy this morning, this is an achievement for Israeli policy... (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's) speech in Congress ... was decisive in achieving this law, which is a very important element in preventing a bad deal, or at least, in improving the agreement and making it more reasonable," Steinitz told Israel Radio.

Obama dropped his opposition on Tuesday to a bill giving Congress a voice on a nuclear deal with Iran, after members of his Democratic Party negotiated changes to the bill that had won strong support from both parties.
