WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry will make the case this week to skeptical Republicans and Democrats that the US Congress should give him another two and a half months to secure a final nuclear deal with Iran.

In closed briefings with the full House of Representatives on Monday and the Senate on Tuesday, the chief US diplomat also hopes to blunt legislation that would giving Congress the opportunity to approve or reject sanctions relief in the deal.

Kerry will be accompanied by US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and a representative from the US intelligence community, US Senate and House aides said on Monday.
