Poll: Europeans Do Not See Iran as Nuclear Threat

Iran is not a threat for nearly six out of ten EU3 adults according to a recent poll.
Adults in France were more likely to think Iran posed a nuclear threat (34 per cent) than in Germany (30 per cent) and Britain (27 per cent.)

Of those adults surveyed who did believe Iran posed a nuclear threat, 59 per cent said diplomacy was the best way to handle the situation.

Just three per cent said using military force alone was the best course of action. Support for military action was highest in Britain (seven percent) and lowest in Germany (zero percent.)

An additional 22 percent across all countries supported the combined approach of using both diplomacy and military force.
