Iran’s noncompliance on the nuclear issue was causing the German government to very seriously consider imposing new sanctions on Teheran, Reuters reported on Friday.

The Islamic republic's defiance and “continuation of a dangerous nuclear policy are forcing the international community to pursue further comprehensive sanctions in New York against the regime in Teheran," the news agency quoted German government spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm as saying at a news conference.

Wilhelm reportedly added that despite increasing skepticism in the West concerning Iran’s intentions, German Chancellor Angela Merkel still favored the diplomatic option and remained strongly opposed to a military strike.
