Ayalon in Germany: Apply pressure on Iran until it breaks

February 3, 2012 19:17

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon warned German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere that heavy pressure must be immediately applied to Iran "until it breaks," speaking during a panel at the Munich Conference on Friday.

"We do not have the privilege to wait on the results of sanctions against Iran," Ayalon told de Maiziere. Germany, he added, "as the strongest country in the European Union," must send a message to policy-makers in those European countries that are reliant on Iranian oil to break their reliance on it in order for EU sanctions to be significant.
