BERLIN - The international community's patience in talks on Iran's nuclear programme is not infinite, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told the Bundestag parliament in Berlin on Thursday.

Occupying the podium to explain government policy before the European Union summit in Brussels, he made clear that Tehran must not delay in the dispute over its nuclear research.

He said the anti-Israel remarks by Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad made a solution more difficult. Steinmeier said the president's statements were "unacceptable" and hard to exceed in their "cynicism".

Germany, France and Britain have been negotiating with Teheran with little result to persuade it not to develop nuclear weapons.
