Germany Wouldn’t Join Military Action to Halt Iran Nuclear Aims

Germany wouldn’t join in a military strike to halt Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program even if the U.S. determined that such action was required, Germany’s deputy foreign minister, Werner Hoyer, said today.

“We are definitely not going to participate in a military action” to scuttle Iran’s suspected nuclear bomb program, Hoyer said in an interview in Bloomberg’s Washington Bureau. “This is something the United States will one day have to decide if the situation cannot be avoided, but we hope it can be avoided,” he said.
