Senator Signals More Sanctions

Sen. Bob Corker signaled that US lawmakers could increase sanctions against Iran if nuclear negotiations do not yield an agreement. Corker, who will be the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman in the next Congress, said on “Fox News Sunday” that there was “no question” that lawmakers would increase sanctions against Iran, the Hill reported.  “There’s no question,” Corker said. “If the (nuclear) deal falls apart, then there will be more sanctions.” Republicans have signaled that they will take up a new Iran sanctions bill in January. Many Democrats, including the Obama administration, are opposed to new sanctions as the negotiations with Iran are underway. Corker said the bill would move “regular order” and not immediately.
