German Chancellor Urges US to Drop Belligerent Attitude towards Iran

submit to reddit

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday called on her country’s allies, specially the US, to fully exploit diplomatic efforts over Iran’s nuclear issue, rather than discussing the possibility of military solution.

In an interview with German newspaper Leipziger Volkszeitung’s weekend edition, Merkel said that diplomatic solutions to Iran’s nuclear issue “have not exhausted” and there is, thus, no justification for the US to speak of war.

International community should “exploit all the diplomatic room to maneuver and Germany can make a contribution,” she added.

Merkel said instead of debating on whether military attacks could help break the deadlock, world leadership should discuss other priorities.

The United States and its allies have long accused Iran of using its nuclear program as a cover to develop nuclear weapons. Iran firmly denied that, insisting its right for pursuing nuclear power for civilian purpose.

Amano released the UN nuclear watchdog’s latest report on Iran’s nuclear activities on Tuesday. Many nuclear experts and political pundits even in the West believe that the report carries the US tone and wording.

Political observes say that Israel and the United States dictated the report to Amano on Iran to find a pretext for intensifying pressures on the Islamic Republic.

Once the report was released, not only Iran, but also many world states, including Russia, China and the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) member states, strongly rejected it and blasted the UN nuclear watchdog chief for acting as a White House proxy.

The western diplomats and sources had informed around a month ago that the new report would contain allegations on the basis of some copied documents which have been presented to the IAEA by certain western countries to show that Iran is pursuing a military drive in its nuclear program.

Meantime, Iran underlined that it would not budge “an iota” from its peaceful atomic activities.

Iran has always stressed its full cooperation with the IAEA, and meantime protested that the world body is not fulfilling its duties with regard to Israel.

    Enough is enough. Talking has NOT worked. It’s time for serious action. Go to http://www.thereligionofpeace.com and see just who you are trying to pacify. God has a plan…it will be carried out. Now or later; in His time. See Ezekiel Chapters 38 and 39. War with Israel is inevitable…The last verse of Ezekiel 38 should be known beforehand…

    Philippino Bob… I have a better BOOK for reference. Not made up lies of centuries old hatred. It’s called The HOLY BIBLE. Begin at Genesis (**with a Concordance and make sure you have ***a couple different translations with numerous footnotes.) *Read the first FIVE Books and STUDY them…continue on without missing a Word and ALL the footnotes. The NKJV By Nelson, Life Application Study Bible and the NIV for starters. It is there, and ONLY there, that you will begin to SEE the Truth. Your very ‘life’ depends upon a correct understanding of the situation from the beginning. ISLAM is a LIE. What exactly is it that you don’t understand about http://www.thereligionofpeace.com ?? It’s a ‘Study’ of evil and continuous NEWS confirming from around the world. Get out of your ‘box’ and check out the Scriptures. The hour is late. Romans Chapter 11 will help to bring you closer…

    No thanks, I never read any religious BS, I am not a religious freak. My country is the best example of what religion can do to screw up the society.
    Religion(s) have been the curse of humanity for 6000 years and it still is today.
    Wake up and smell the coffee!
    Let’s try not to repeat the WW2 Zionist’s conspiracy.
    I assume you do know the difference between Zionists and Jews.
    Simply put:
    Zionists (1%) are the ones who create trouble.
    Jews (99%) are the ones who pay the price.

    None so blind as those that refuse to see. It’s your decision…Truth is; “Man is appointed once to die, then the judgement.” All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God… There is a Savior, you need to seek Him. Jesus Christ is the Way.

    Sorry Merkel you are talking to the US, where their president loves wars and has committed the US to more wars than any other president. That being said, Iran is a thorn for many and I believe that it will not listen to reason, but you can try, but you will be talking to a brick wall.

    Talking to your Murdoch newspaper on the train is often considered quite mad within diplomatic circles.
