Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif said Friday that a vote in U.S. Congress for more sanctions against his country will kill a likely nuclear deal with the West.Speaking in an Associated Press debate at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Zarif warned that Iran's parliament will retaliate if U.S. lawmakers approve fresh sanctions.The U.S. and its partners are hoping to turn an interim Geneva accord into a permanent deal with Iran that would set long-term limits on Iran's enrichment of uranium and other activity that could produce material for use in nuclear weapons.Zarif also disputed assertions by Germany's defense minister, Ursula von der Leyen, that sanctions were key in forcing Iran to the negotiating table.
