IRAN - National Security Advisor Rice on Iran & Afghanistan Negotiations, and Syria

"National Security Advisor Rice:  'Now is not the time for new sanctions' on Iran" PBS Newshour 11/19/2013


JUDY WOODRUFF (Newshour):  As the U.S. negotiating team readies for the next round of talks in Geneva over Iran's nuclear program, President Obama urged senators at the White House today to hold off on seeking additional sanctions on the country.

Afterwards, six senators including Democrats Charles Schumer and Robert Menendez, sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, insisting that the administration not accept an agreement that would be overly generous to Iran or not tough enough on its nuclear program.

National Security Adviser Susan Rice joins me now from the White House to talk about today's meeting and the upcoming negotiations.
