Skeptical of Iran, US senator revives sanctions push
An influential US senator sought Thursday to revive a push for sanctions to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions, arguing that calling for new penalties is not war-mongering as suggested by the White House.


Senator Robert Menendez, a Democrat, went on the offensive in a marathon floor speech outlining his distrust of the Iranian regime, saying he was "deeply skeptical" of Tehran's intention to adhere to an interim agreement with world powers over its nuclear program. (AFP)
