German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle emphasized the concerns his country shared with Israel over Iran's nuclear program, following a meeting with Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday.

"A nuclear-armed Iran would not only pose a threat to Israel but to the stability of the entire region. A nuclear-armed Iran is not an option," he said.

He said that Germany would maintain sanctions and diplomatic pressure on Iran, adding that there was still room for diplomacy. "We urgently call on Iran to enter into substantial negotiations," he said.
