US senators threaten renewed push for Iran sanctions

November 12, 2014 21:11

WASHINGTON - Two US senators who wrote a tough sanctions bill against Iran said on Wednesday they would work with other members of Congress to push for action against Tehran if a potential deal does not dismantle Iran's nuclear program.

New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Illinois Republican Mark Kirk said a "good deal" would require strict limits on nuclear-related research, development and procurement and a robust inspection regime for decades in Iran.

"If a potential deal does not achieve these goals, we will work with our colleagues in Congress to act decisively, as we have in the past," the two senators said in a statement.
