Heiko Maas says Donald Trump’s policy brings far-reaching changes, as he has turned down the multilateral rules-of-play and is pursuing American interests with one-sided actions

Germany's foreign minister says President Donald Trump is "consciously accepting" that unilateral decisions such as the US withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal with six world powers could hurt European allies.
Heiko Maas was quoted in an interview Friday with the daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung as saying that the US remains Germany's closest partner outside Europe but that Berlin must explore "new paths" in seeking partners that want to preserve a multilateral world order, AP reported.
Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal last month and announced the “highest level” of sanctions against the country.
Maas said that there are differences between Berlin and Washington which Germany  “cannot hush them up".
