US Ambassador Dan Shapiro on Tuesday said to a closed meeting that while the US preferred a diplomatic resolution to the nuclear standoff with Iran, that did not mean that the US would not use the military option and it already has such an option ready, Channel 2 news reported Wednesday.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany are currently engaged in negotiations with Iran in efforts to convince it to abandon what the West alleges is a push towards producing nuclear weapons.

The sides are having daily contacts and the next major meeting is May 23 in Baghdad.
