Obama: Now is not the time for new Iran sanctions

Published: 12.20.13, 23:03 / Israel News

President Barack Obama said on Friday he understands why some US lawmakers want to "look tough" on Iran but insisted now is not the time to impose new sanctions on Tehran while it is set to negotiate over a long-term nuclear deal with world powers.

 

"There is no need for new sanctions legislation, not yet," Obama told a White House news conference a day after a group of US senators introduced a bill to impose new punitive measures on Iran if it breaks an interim nuclear deal reached last month in Geneva. (Reuters)
