On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, earlier this year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu she believed war could break out in the Middle East if the United States withdraws from the Iran nuclear deal.

According to Axios, the two leaders spoke Jan. 24 at the Davos event, two weeks following President Donald Trump's remarks in which he threatened to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran deal if Germany, France, and the United Kingdom were not able to agree to specific changes in the deal before a May 12 deadline.

Merkel reportedly told Netanyahu, "It will put us, the Brits, and the French on the same side with Russia, China, and Iran when the U.S. and Israel will be on the other side. Is this what you want?"

Last fall, Trump decertified the Iran deal, a move that gave Congress 60 days to debate the issue. To date, the U.S. has yet to make any changes to the agreement that sought to curb Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said this past weekend he feels Trump will ultimately withdraw the U.S. from the agreement.
