FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2013, photo, President Barack Obama makes a statement in the James Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, after he spoke with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Congress generally backs Obama's new outreach to Iran, but with tougher U.S. economic sanctions against Tehran on the way, the president's diplomatic task will only get harder if he doesn't make quick progress. Obama's phone call last week to Rouhani was the first contact in more than 30 years between the leaders of the two countries. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak) less
