Obama: No need to ‘look tough’ on Iran through new sanctions

 Barack Obama said that he understood why some U.S lawmakers wanted to “look tough” on Iran but insisted now was not the time to impose new sanctions on Tehran while it was set to negotiate over a long-term nuclear deal with world powers.

“There is no need for new sanctions legislation, not yet”, Obama told a White House news conference a day after a group of U.S senators introduced a bill to impose new punitive measures on Iran if it breaks an interim nuclear deal reached last month in Geneva.

Obama, who has warned that new sanctions could scuttle the negotiations, said that “if we are serious” about seeking a final nuclear agreement the United States had to act in ways that did not increase Iranian suspicions.
