Democrats signal willingness to wait on Iran sanctions

Published: 01.15.14, 01:14 / Israel News

Under pressure from the Obama administration, Senate Democrats who favor a new batch of sanctions on Iran signaled a willingness to hold off on levying penalties to give diplomatic negotiations a chance.

Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, made clear that a vote on a package of penalties pushed by Sens. Bob Menendez, a Democrat, and Mark Kirk, a Republican, would not occur anytime soon despite a call for a vote from Republican leader Mitch McConnell and a daunting number of backers for the legislation – 59.
