Obama urged to stand strong on Iran

Republicans push president to reaffirm US commitment to blocking Tehran from nuclear arms.

    A group of United States senators, mostly Republicans, has called for President Barack Obama to take a  more firm public stance over the nuclear dispute with Iran.

    More than one-third of US senators are sponsoring a non-binding resolution that lists reasons for why Iran is a threat.

    The group wants Obama to reaffirm the US commitment to preventing Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
