Obama to Meet with Senators on Iran

President Obama will meet on Tuesday with Senate leadership and the top members of the Senate Banking, Foreign Relations, Armed Services, and Intelligence committees, to update them on the negotiations over Iran's nuclear program, a White House official told The Hill.

The briefing will "provide an update on the status of the P5+1 negotiations with Iran before the next round of talks begin later this week in Geneva," said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the National Security Council.


The president's meeting is the latest step in the administration's effort to persuade members of Congress to delay further sanctions against Iran. The second round of talks is scheduled to start Wednesday. The administration has argued moving forward on additional sanctions could derail the talks.
