Senators Call on Obama to Sanction Iran Over Deal with Russia


Two U.S. senators, who led a push for more sanctions on Iran during negotiations over its nuclear program, on Monday called on President Barack Obama to impose more restrictions if Tehran pursues an energy barter agreement with Russia, Reuters reported.

Last week it was reported that Tehran and Moscow had made progress toward an oil-for-goods deal that sources said could be worth $20 billion and enable Iran to boost vital energy exports in defiance of Western sanctions.
