The leaders of Germany and Egypt on Sunday underlined their commitment to helping secure stability in Iraq and Lebanon, and Chancellor Angela Merkel suggested that Berlin might step up efforts to train Iraqi soldiers. Merkel met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak as Germany prepares to take over the presidency of the European Union and Group of Eight on Jan. 1.
