BERLIN - Debate about a military strike against Iran is dangerous and strengthens the leadership of the Islamic Republic rather than weakening it, Germany's Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle told a newspaper.

Israeli media have been rife with speculation that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is working to secure cabinet consensus for an attack on Iranian nuclear installations.

Western powers suspect Tehran of trying to develop nuclear weapons and have imposed sanctions in an attempt to curb its program. Iran denies seeking nuclear weapons and says its atom program is for power generation.

"I warn against floating the idea of military options," Westerwelle told Hamburger Abendblatt.

"These are debates...that strengthen the Iranian leadership rather than weaken it."
