G-7 host Angela Merkel of Germany, once dubbed the "climate chancellor," hoped to revitalize her green credentials by getting the G-7 nations to agree specific emissions goals ahead of a larger year-end United Nations climate meeting in Paris.The leaders stopped short of agreeing any such immediate binding targets for their economies. The Europeans had pressed their G-7 partners to sign up to legally binding targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.President Barack Obama and Merkel both said the G-7 countries were ready, if necessary, to strengthen sanctions against Moscow.The leaders discussed the Greek debt crisis as a group and also in bilateral meetings during the summit at the foot of Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze.
