|U.S. Republican lawmakers seek greater say on Iran nuclear deal||
U.S. Republican lawmakers introduced legislation on Wednesday that would force President Barack Obama to submit quickly to Congress any comprehensive nuclear agreement with Iran and give lawmakers the chance to reject the deal and reimpose sanctions, according to Reuters.
The five senators introduced their bill just five days after Iran and the six major powers announced they had failed to meet a deadline to end a decade-old dispute over Iran’s nuclear program and agreed to extend an interim agreement for four months, including some further sanctions relief for Tehran.
“While this bill does not include new sanctions on Iran, it allows Congress to seek further sanctions if an acceptable final deal can’t be reached,” said Senator Bob Corker, one of the bill’s co-sponsors.
