White House: New Iran sanctions bill could undermine US diplomacy

The White House voiced its opposition to a new Iran sanctions bill submitted by Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Robert Menendez on Thursday. 
"We don't think it will be enacted, we don't think it should be enacted," White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Thursday, after the bill was introduced.
"It is very important to refrain from taking an action that would potentially disrupt the opportunity here for a diplomatic solution," Carney said. "We don't want to see actions that would proactively undermine American diplomacy."
