There you go. Their relationship was benefactor and beneficiary.

Red Skull was his boss and helped fund his research. I don't think that means Arnim and Johann considered themselves to be friends. I don't think Johann HAS friends...but even if considered say Mother Night or Crossbones to be friends...he wouldn't consider that cowardly Arnim to be his friend.

If memory serves Arnim is Swiss. The Swiss wanted to be neutral in the war but stole the Jewish gold the Nazis smuggled out of Germany. I bet the Red Skull considers Arnim and the Swiss to be cowardly opportunists. With the Allies he and Germany had true enemies which he could respect on that level. With the Swiss the Germans dealt with opportunism disguised as neutrality. I doubt the Red Skull ever really trusts Arnim.
