Iran Says US Sanctions Could Complicate Nuke Talks

House of Representatives recently overwhelming passed a tightening of sanctions


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's foreign ministry says possible new U.S. sanctions will not change Tehran's nuclear policy, but could complicate talks with world powers.

Thursday's state TV report follows U.S. House passage of calls to tighten sanctions on Iran's oil sector, which already is under major pressures from Western economic measures seeking to rein in Iran's nuclear program.

The U.S. plan now moves to the Senate.
