Matthias Küntzel: United we Stand! Berlin and Vienna Against the West

The division of Europe on the Iran nuclear question came into the open on Sept. 21. On that day, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany discussed how the Security Council should proceed on the matter. After Iran had ignored the U.N.‘s first two sanctions resolutions, a third, tougher regime of sanctions was on the agenda. For the first time, Germany openly broke from the transatlantic consensus. Whereas “the United States, Britain and France pushed for a third resolution and tougher sanctions,” the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) wrote, Germany rejected the proposal, which aimed not at monitoring Iran’s uranium enrichment program, but at getting it suspended. According to the FAZ report of Sept. 22, Germany did not want to complicate the negotiations between Iran and the IAEA, which are supposed to continue until the end of the year.
