BEIRUT - The Iranian nuclear deal could help Lebanon overcome the obstacles that have for more than a year prevented the election of a president, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said on Wednesday.

The presidency has been vacant since Michel Suleiman's term expired in May 2014. Filling it requires a deal between rival politicians who are aligned with competing regional powers, Iran and Saudi Arabia.

"This agreement could help create the climate that would help remove the complications facing the election of a president of the republic," Berri, an ally of Iran, was quoted as saying in a statement circulated by his office.
