The Obama administration is engaging congressional leaders to soften legislation targeting Iran's energy sector out of concern such US sanctions would harm relations with Europe, Russia and China and their adherence to the UN sanctions regime just passed by the Security Council, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Administration officials have begun negotiations with legislators drafting bills to punish companies that sell refined petroleum products to Iran or aid the country's oil industry, according to the report.
