WASHINGTON — More than 70 Democrats in the US House of Representatives signed a letter to President Obama supporting his opposition to new Iran sanctions.

The letter, initiated by Reps. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) and David Price (D-NC), expresses support for talks now underway between Iran and major powers on the Iranian nuclear program.

“We understand that there is no assurance of success and that, if talks break down or Iran reneges on pledges it made in the interim agreement, Congress may be compelled to act as it has in the past by enacting additional sanctions legislation,” says the letter, which has not yet been sent and which JTA obtained Tuesday from Doggett’s office.
