A day after striking a nuclear agreement with Iran, President Obama will hold a news conference Wednesday at the White House to promote the historic deal.

Mr. Obama has called the news conference for 1 p.m. in the East Room, a session that also will likely touch on the economy and his efforts to get his agenda through the Republican-led Congress.

Some GOP lawmakers and allies of Israel are panning the agreement with Iran, which will curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting of international sanctions. Congress now has 60 days to review the agreement, and the president is vowing to veto any measure that would unravel the accord.

After the news conference, Mr. Obama will travel to Oklahoma to meet with members of the Choctaw Nation and give a speech on economic opportunity. He’ll spend the night in Oklahoma City before touring a federal prison near there on Thursday.
