"They have met in Washington and now in Europe. They have been on the phone on a whole range of issues of the international agenda. And the chancellor has been committed to transatlantic relations, to a friendship with the U.S. right from the start of her career as few other leaders have been."

Discussing differences of views, as on climate change, is part of those relations, Ambassador Wittig said.

"I think that’s part of good and dependable relations that we can speak openly about our differences."
