WASHINGTON, April 14 (Reuters) - Republican and Democratic leaders of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee reached a compromise agreement that would shorten Congress' review of any final Iran nuclear deal to 52 days under an Iran nuclear bill, the panel's chairman, Republican Senator Bob Corker, said on Tuesday.

A Senate aide said the compromise, which will be considered by the full committee later on Tuesday, would give Congress 30 days to review the deal, 12 days for a possible veto of congressional action by President Barack Obama and then 10 days for an override vote.
