Iran is showing increased readiness to resume talks about its disputed nuclear program but has not indicated any willingness to make compromises yet, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on Friday.

Western powers hope the imposition of tougher U.N., U.S. and European sanctions since June on Iran, the world's No. 5 oil exporter, will persuade it to enter serious negotiations and ultimately agree to curb uranium enrichment.

Following talks in Berlin with Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Westerwelle said Iran was still flouting the demands of the international community regarding its nuclear program.
