US Secretary of State John Kerry defended on Sunday his presentation of a framework agreement on Iran's nuclear program after a different interpretation was offered by Iran's supreme leader, and a prominent U.S. senator said Kerry was "delusional."

"I will stand by every fact that I have said," Kerry told ABC's "This Week."

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had strong words last week about Iran's agreement with major world powers, declaring that once a final deal was reached it should result in an immediate end to all sanctions on Iran.

Kerry has said the sanctions would be suspended in phases.

"You know, they're going to put their spin on their point of view and obviously they'll allege that we're putting a spin on our point of view," Kerry said of the Iranian comments.
