WASHINGTON - Republican and Democratic leaders of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee reached a compromise agreement that would shorten Congress' review of any Iran nuclear deal to 52 days under an Iran nuclear bill, the panel's chairman, Republican Senator Bob Corker, said on Tuesday.

A Senate aide said the compromise, which will be considered by the full committee later on Tuesday, would give Congress 30 days to review the deal, 12 days for a possible veto of Congress' action by President Barack Obama and then 10 days for an override vote.

Supporters of the bill have been scrambling to shore up bipartisan support for the measure, put forward by Corker, which seeks to give Congress a vote on any final nuclear agreement with Iran.
