WASHINGTON (Reuters) — U.S. Democratic Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse said on Tuesday they both backed the U.S.-led international nuclear deal with Iran.

The two Rhode Island senators said in a statement the U.S. Congress would be making a strategic mistake if it derailed the agreement.

The Senate and House of Representatives have to vote by Sept. 17 on a “resolution of disapproval” being brought by majority Republicans aiming to sink the deal.
