Senate majority support Iran sanctions bill opposed by Obama
More than half of US senators support a bill to impose new sanctions on Iran should the Islamic Republic break an agreement to curb its nuclear program, aides said on Thursday, but there was no plan yet to debate the measure.

 

The White House has threatened to veto the legislation, called "Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act", and Iran says last November's nuclear deal struck in Geneva would be dead if the US Congress imposes new sanctions. (Reuters)
