On November 30, Federal Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle commented in Berlin on Iran’s announced intention to expand uranium enrichment:
Iran’s announcement that it intends to expand uranium enrichment is clearly a step in the wrong direction. Iran must know the patience of the international community is not inexhaustible. I call on Iran to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency without any ifs or buts and to fulfill its international obligations.
Clearly, if Iran spurns our outstretched hand, it must realize this may mean further sanctions.
