Unattractive Alternatives  Unattractive Alternatives

Alternatives to a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program are “not very attractive,” a top German diplomat said Thursday, the Associated Press Reported.

The German ambassador to the US, Peter Wittig, also said while the US Congress would probably be willing to impose new sanctions, other countries would not follow.

Wittig praised US diplomatic efforts in nuclear talks while offering Germany’s perspective on the negotiations. He stressed that military strikes were not a solid alternative to a negotiated deal. “It could set back Iran’s ambitions for a couple months, maybe years, but it would not be lasting and not be very viable,” he said. Iran says its nuclear work is solely for peaceful purposes.  

In addition, He said Berlin pleads to give diplomacy a chance.
