In a closed-door briefing on October 31, senior White House officials, including Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry, urged the senators to hold off on a new package of sanctions on Iran.


White House officials did not sway every senator who participated in the meeting, but the Senate Banking Committee would reportedly delay plans for drafting a new sanctions bill next week.

Reports say the White House wants to see the outcome of the upcoming Geneva negotiations with Tehran first before agreeing to sign off on new sanctions.
