German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said Thursday that the global community will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Westerwelle was speaking to the Global Forum of the American Jewish Committee in Washington.

"The current Iranian nuclear program represents an enormous danger not only to Israel but to the region as a whole," Westerwelle told the group.



"We cannot and will not accept an Iranian nuclear weapon... We need substantive and verifiable guarantees that Iran is not pursuing a nuclear weapon."

Most western countries believe Iran is seeking to produce a nuclear weapon, using a peaceful civilian energy program as cover.
