German FM urges Palestinians 'not to tear down bridges'

RAMALLAH - Germany's new foreign minister on Monday urged the Palestinians "not to tear down bridges," an apparent reference to President Mahmoud Abbas' contentious relationship with the US and political rival Hamas.


Heiko Mass also acknowledged differences with Israel about the international community's nuclear deal with Iran, but gave no commitment to altering the deal ahead of a mid-May deadline set by President Donald Trump.


Mass was on his first trip to the Middle East since becoming foreign minister earlier this month.
