The White House has warned U.S. lawmakers against imposing new sanctions against Iran in order to give diplomacy a chance to resolve the dispute over the Islamic republic's nuclear program. White House spokesman Jay Carney said tightening sanctions against Iran could increase the chance of war.

"This is a decision to support diplomacy and a peaceful resolution to this issue. The American people, justifiably and understandably, prefer a peaceful solution that prevents Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and this agreement has the potential to do that," Carney said.

Iran denies trying to make a nuclear weapon.

Another round of nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers is due to start next week.
