German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that a nuclear agreement with Iran "certainly won't happen soon." Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, who met with Scholz in Berlin, urged Western leaders to "move past" the negotiations. Scholz said that European countries "remain patient" but that "Iran must be prevented from being able to deploy nuclear weapons."
