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.
