Germany and the US have a close economic relationship. In 2015 the US became Germany's biggest trade partner, but it hasn't always been plain sailing. The countries have a long, complicated trading history behind them.
Despite tense relations between Germany and the United States, a new study shows Germans and Americans worry about similar issues.
The US has sent the German Economy Ministry a letter warning of the risks posed by using "untrusted vendors" in its 5G network. The letter comes amid tensions between Chinese telecom giant Huawei and the US.
After meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Maas said the two nations have the "same goals" on Iran — despite the US decision to abandon the Iran nuclear pact. The meeting came amid strained trans-Atlantic ties.
German automakers VW and BMW each increased sales to more than 300,000 cars in the US in 2018 while the sales of several competitors fell. VW had a second year of higher sales, while BMW posted its first jump since 2015.
