Muslim and non-Muslim relationship

Assalamualaikum

Are muslims and non muslims allowed to be friends?
There are a few verses where Allah has commanded muslims not befriend jews, Christians and idolaters. However I have heard many scholars say that it is ok to be friends with non-muslims even atheists, and these verses only addressed specific situations that were meant to warn early muslims that jews and idolaters of their time cannot be trusted since they were at war with them.
