Germany: Iran wants guarantee of no sanctions

Iran wants guarantees that it won't face sanctions before it is prepared to restart negotiations over its nuclear program, Germany's foreign minister said Friday. Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier called the condition unacceptable. "I have always said that we must begin negotiations without preconditions. ... That is why Iran must understand we cannot come to the negotiating table when every day new centrifuges are being constructed," Steinmeier told reporters.
