US senator: enough Iran sanctions support to override veto

US Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, is pictured November 18, 2014There is sufficient support for expanded sanctions on Iran in the new Republican-controlled US Congress to override veto threats by President Barack Obama, a senator told radio broadcaster NPR Wednesday. The Obama administration and other global powers are in the midst of prolonged negotiations with Tehran to end a decade-long standoff over its nuclear activities, which the West sees as efforts to develop an atomic bomb. The White House has sought to dissuade US lawmakers from passing new sanctions against Tehran, warning such a move could scupper talks. The White House wants any deal reached with Iran to be binding on its own, but several US lawmakers have insisted any pact with Iran must go through Congress, not only Obama.
