Merkel: US Ties Key to Germany 07/20 06:25 BERLIN (AP) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel says the trans-Atlantic relationship remains "central" to her government despite tensions with President Donald Trump. Merkel didn't respond directly when asked about the relationship at a news conference Friday whether, given Trump's about-turns on various issues. Trump has frequently criticized Germany for what he views as inadequate military spending and over a planned new natural gas pipeline linking Germany with Russia. Merkel said that "the order we are used to is under strong pressure at the moment." However, she said trans-Atlantic cooperation, including with the president of the United States of America, is "of course central for us and I will continue to nurture it." Merkel said she won't back off seeing multilateral approaches and remains convinced that cooperation produces "win-win" situations. (KA)
