Tougher Russia sanctions would mean tough choices for Obama

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Despite levying six rounds of increasingly tough economic sanctions against Russia for its actions in Ukraine, President Barack Obama has left two rich targets untouched: Moscow's natural gas export behemoth and its main weapons exporter.

But prolonging negotiations for a few months would help reinforce his position within Iran's complex power structure by delaying an easing of sanctions that is likely to benefit liberal competitors at elections due early in 2016. #Economy #China #Business #Elections #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #markets #Latin America
