EU's Van Rompuy doesn't favor any military solution for Iran

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said on Friday he was not in favor of any military solution for Iran.

The United States and the European Union have tightened sanctions against Iran this year, hoping to choke its oil revenues and persuade it to abandon a suspected nuclear weapons program.

Tehran says its nuclear program is for peaceful means.
