BERLIN (AP) — Germany's top diplomat is launching a yearlong, multimillion-dollar publicity campaign to woo Americans, as Berlin tries to figure out its rocky relationship with the Trump administration.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas arrived in Washington for talks Wednesday with his U.S. counterpart, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during which they'll discuss the nuclear deal with Iran and relations with Russia.

Germany and the United States have clashed on those and other issues in recent months, straining the two nations' traditionally good ties to the point where Maas has called for Berlin to "reposition" itself.

While taking a more assertive diplomatic tone in Washington, Maas will also be kicking off a charm offensive, called "Wunderbar Together," that's aimed at winning over regular Americans with hundreds of Germany-focused events across the United States.
