Germany’s chancellor said the world must prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons. “It is time that the U.N. Security Council address sanctions,” Angela Merkel said after meeting Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, according to a release issued by the German Embassy in Washington. Merkel reportedly also vowed to stand by Israel against Iran. “Israel will never face Iran alone. Germany will be beside it like a fortified wall,” Yediot Achronot quoted Merkel as telling Olmert.
