US Vice President Joe Biden unleashed a scathing attack against Congressional Republicans on Tuesday, accusing them of "undercutting" the Obama administration as it attempts to negotiate an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.

"The letter sent on March 9th by forty-seven Republican Senators to the Islamic Republic of Iran, expressly designed to undercut a sitting President in the midst of sensitive international negotiations, is beneath the dignity of an institution I revere," Biden wrote.

The vice president, who is also the president of the Senate, echoed the sentiments expressed earlier by the White House, which accused Republicans of partisan interference in negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, this after 47 caucus members sent a letter to Tehran warning of their intent to undermine any future multilateral agreement.
