Washington: US Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at Republican lawmakers for their "highly misleading" letter Monday to Iran`s leaders cautioning against a nuclear deal with the United States.

"The letter sent on March 9th by 47 Republican Senators to the Islamic Republic of Iran, expressly designed to undercut a sitting president in the midst of sensitive international negotiations, is beneath the dignity of an institution I revere," Biden said in a statement.
