WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama would veto a bill crafted by US Republican Senators Lindsey Graham and Bob Corker that would require the administration to receive congressional approval for any deal it strikes with Iran over Tehran's nuclear program, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Thursday.

The bill would set a "harmful precedent" that would "negatively impact" negotiations with Iran, Earnest said at a news briefing.
