Washington’s UN envoy Samantha Power warned the US Congress on January 12, 2015 that ratcheting up sanctions against Iran would likely torpedo negotiations on a landmark deal to curb Tehran’s nuclear program. The US ambassador to the United Nations said beefing up sanctions would also isolate the United States in its strategy to address Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and weaken joint international pressure.
