Key US senator ‘alarmed’ by reports on Iran talks

WASHINGTON – The chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee told President Barack Obama on Monday he was alarmed by reports that negotiators may be making too many concessions in nuclear talks with Iran, a sign of the stiff fight a final deal faces winning

approval in Congress.

“It is breathtaking to see how far from your original goals and statements the P5+1 have come during negotiations with Iran,” Republican Bob Corker said in a letter to Obama, a day after Israel also expressed new concerns about the talks. Corker is the author of a bill Obama signed into law last month that allows Congress to review a final nuclear deal with Iran for 30 days. The letter included some of the most severe concerns he has expressed publicly about the negotiations.
