'Merkel, Netanyahu likely to discuss Iran bank'

BERLIN - German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu are likely to discuss a German bank providing financial services to Iran when they meet this week, a source said on Monday.
Israel and the United States want Germany to shut down the bank, Hamburg-based EIH, saying it supports the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction by handling payments to known participants in Iran's contentious nuclear program.
"I would imagine the Iranian issue will be an agenda item, and among those, I imagine that EIH would be an issue," an Israeli political source said, declining to be named. "It would be a good assumption to say they will speak about it."
