WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama called Republican Senator Bob Corker on Wednesday to discuss the framework agreement reached last week to contain Iran's nuclear ambitions, the White House said.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Obama administration officials have been talking to members of Congress from both parties about the terms of the deal reached by the United States and other world powers with Iran.

Corker is the sponsor of a bill that would require Congress to approve a final nuclear agreement.
