White House has announced if the US Congress insists on approving new set of sanctions against Iran, President Obama will veto it.

The Obama administration has been insisting that new sanctions on Iran could derail the negotiations with Iran and undermine diplomatic efforts.

According to the Geneva deal, the US and the other 5+1 parties have agreed to refrain from introducing new sanctions during the next six months of talks.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said today: “We made it very clear to Senate that it is not the time for new Iran sanctions.”

He added that they do not believe that new sanctions would be enacted but confirmed: “If it were enacted, the president would veto it.”
