WASHINGTON - Two senior US senators - Democrat Robert Menendez and Republican Lindsey Graham - on Monday urged President Barack Obama to take a tough line against Iran in his speech to the UN General Assembly this week.

Menendez, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Graham, an influential Republican on international issues, sent a letter to Obama urging him to restate the US goal of not permitting Iran to achieve nuclear weapons capability and demanding verifiable action from Tehran in order to permit the possibility of a diplomatic accord.
