U.S. State Department rebuffs Republican criticism of Iran nuclear talks

Corker talks to reporters as he arrives for the weekly Republican caucus policy luncheons at the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy Louis Charbonneau UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department fought back on Friday against the latest Republican criticism of the Iran nuclear talks, saying any moves to lift U.N. sanctions if there was a deal would not limit U.S. options for future action against Tehran. Reuters reported on Thursday that the United States and five other major powers and Iran have begun talks on a possible draft resolution to endorse any future deal and address the lifting of U.N. sanctions. In a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama sent before the Reuters story was published, Republican Senator Bob Corker warned that any move by the administration to bypass Congress and go straight to the U.N. Security Council with an Iran deal would be “a direct affront to the American people.” State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters a Security Council resolution would not impact the U.S. ability to act unilaterally on Iran or compel it to remove sanctions, many of which pre-date U.N. nuclear penalties.
