Sen. Fischer Wary About Proposed Deal With Iran
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer objects to a purported deal with Iran, which seems to have been scuttled during talks among six countries. France objected to a deal that is reported to have offered to unfreeze $ 50 billion dollars in Iranian assets in exchange for an agreement that Iran would slow its nuclear program. Fischer says France demonstrated the value of working with allies. Fischer says Iran wants the United States to concede it has a right to enrich nuclear fuel. The Senate Banking Committee is considering whether the US should impose additional sanctions against Iran.
