US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday pushed back against calls for further sanctions on Iran now over its nuclear program, saying such action could harm ongoing negotiations.

In a joint news conference, Obama and Cameron urged US lawmakers to exercise patience and hold off on any legislation calling for further sanctions.

"There is no good argument for us to try to undercut, undermine the negotiations until they've played themselves out," Obama told reporters. "Congress needs to show patience," he added.
