Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday Germany and its partners were left with "no choice" but to pursue sanctions against Iran at the UN Security Council after Tehran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment. "It is regrettable that Iran has not yet responded to any of the demands of the international community," Merkel said during a speech in Berlin. "For that reason, we had no choice but to pursue sanctions in the UN Security Council." "There must be no Iranian nuclear program," Merkel said. She did not say what sanctions might be sought. Merkel's foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has said that pressure on the country would be applied gradually, leaving the door open to future negotiations.
