After meeting chancellor in Berlin, Netanyahu meets visiting German opposition chief

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets German opposition chief Friedrich Merz at the premier’s Jerusalem office.

The Prime Minister’s Office says Netanyahu talked with the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party leader about bilateral relations and efforts to expand them, particularly in the defense field; international developments, mainly in Ukraine; and the Iranian threat.

Netanyahu urges Germany to act to stop Iran’s nuclear armament during the meeting, which is attended by Netanyahu’s chief of staff Tzachi Braverman, National Security Adviser Tzachi Hanegbi, PMO Director-General Yossi Sheli, the premier’s military secretary Avi Gil and German Ambassador to Israel Steffen Seibert.

Netanyahu visited Germany last week and met Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
