WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says Vice President Joe Biden has stressed to a dozen Democratic senators that the goal of talks involving the U.S., other world powers and Iran is to keep Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

Some lawmakers want to slap Iran with a new round of sanctions. But the Obama administration has been urging them to hold off, arguing that existing sanctions have been so onerous that they have forced Iran to come to the table seeking relief. The administration says new sanctions could jeopardize the delicate talks that resumed Wednesday in Geneva.

The White House says Biden emphasized that President Barack Obama has a responsibility to seek a peaceful solution.

Biden’s meeting follows a personal appeal by Obama at the White House to other lawmakers on Tuesday.
