WASHINGTON Nov 21 U.S. Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid said on Thursday he was committed to moving ahead
with a new Iran sanctions bill when the Senate returns from its
Thanksgiving recess early next month.
"I will support a bill that would broaden the scope of our
current petroleum sanctions, place limitations on trade with
strategic sectors of the Iranian economy that support its
nuclear ambitions, as well as pursue those who divert goods to
Iran," Reid said in remarks on the Senate floor.
