Prime Minister Paul Martin said Sunday that world inaction on Iran’s moves toward becoming a nuclear power is “simply unacceptable.”

“I do not believe that the world can simply stand by and watch the possibility of Iran going from step-to-step towards the creation of making itself a nuclear power,” he told reporters after meeting Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the EU Council, in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont.

President of the Council of the European Union Jean-Claude Juncker and Prime Minister Paul Martin in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

“It is simply unacceptable in a world in which we all want to limit the threat of nuclear proliferation that the world is unable to come to a satisfactory agreement with Iran.”

Martin and Juncker said the EU and Canada will work together on a whole range of issues, from overfishing in the North Atlantic to Darfur to the Middle East peace process.

The leaders also said their jurisdictions will share airline passenger lists to boost security.

“The EU and Canada will engage in a dialogue on visa-exempt travel for citizens between all EU Member States and Canada for short term stays,” the joint statement said.

But there was no detail as to how the good intentions outlined at the summit will be put into effect.

Juncker acknowledged that the EU was in a “deep crisis” after voters in France and the Netherlands rejected a proposed European constitution, but insisted it was temporary.

“Without any doubt, we’ll have all the energy needed to overcome this difficult moment,” he said.
