The United States and Germany are vowing to work closely together on global matters despite strains in their relationship linked to recent espionage accusations.
They each stressed the vital importance of U.S.-German cooperation on global matters ranging from Irans nuclear program to violence in the Middle East.
Steinmeier acknowledged recent problems in their ties, without going into detail. Kerry emphasized the great friendship between the nations and their strategic partnership.
