Germany: Iran must prove nuclear program peaceful

MUNICH  — A nuclear-armed Iran is "unacceptable" and Teheran needs to prove to the world that its program is for peaceful purposes only, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said Saturday.
Speaking to a gathering of the the world's top defense officials in Munich Westerwelle  said that "a nuclear-armed Iran is unacceptable for us" and would "lead to a destabilization of the entire region."
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki suggested the night before that he believed that Teheran was "approaching a final agreement" on its nuclear program.
But Westerwelle, Germany's vice chancellor, said that if Iran is actually serious it "must take action."
