President George W. Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel presented a united front on the need to stifle Iran's nuclear ambitions but tread cautiously in public on their uphill push for possible UN sanctions. "We spent a lot of time on Iran - after all, we're close allies in trying to make sure that the Iranians do not develop a nuclear weapon," Bush said after his Oval Office meetings with Merkel on Wednesday. "We will continue to consult with our partners as to how to achieve a diplomatic solution to this issue." Other than Merkel's statement that it is crucial to "try to draw as many partners as possible" into the diplomatic efforts, neither leader would deal directly with ways to bring Russia and China alongside the countries moving toward sanctions.
