German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called US President Barack Obama after receiving information that the US may have spied on her mobile phone. A spokesman for Merkel said the German leader “views such practices… as completely unacceptable”. Merkel has called on US officials to clarify the extent of their surveillance in Germany.

Bijela kuća rekla je da je predsjednik Obama rekao kancelarki Merkel da SAD ne njuška njezine komunikacije.

“The United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said on 23 October.

Sjedinjene Države su na bijesu od saveznika zbog optužbi za špijuniranje na temelju materijala za koji se tvrdi da potječe od odbjeglog američkog propusnika Edwarda Snowdena.

Carney je rekao novinarima da Washington ispituje zabrinutost Njemačke, kao i Francuske i drugih američkih saveznika zbog američke obavještajne prakse.

Merkel called on US officials to clarify the extent of surveillance in Germany. But the spokesman did not address whether Mrs Merkel’s phone had been monitored in the past.

Merkel’s call comes a day after US intelligence chief James Clapper denied reports that American spies had recorded data from 70 million phone calls in France in a single 30-day period.

Rekao je izvještaj u Le Monde newspaper had contained “misleading information”.

The German government would not elaborate on how it received the tip about alleged US spying on its leader’s communications.

But news magazine Der Spiegel, which has published stories based on material from Edward Snowden, said the information had come from its investigations. Berlin demanded “an immediate and comprehensive explanation” from Washington about what it said “would be a serious breach of trust”.

In a statement, it said: “Among close friends and partners, as the Federal Republic of Germany and the US have been for decades, there should be no such monitoring of the communications of a head of government.”

The statement also said that Merkel had told Obama: “Such practices must be prevented immediately.”

Brojni američki saveznici izrazili su bijes zbog optužbi za špijuniranje sa sjedištem u Snowdenu.

Brazilska predsjednica Dilma Rousseff otkazala je ovaj mjesec posjet Sjedinjenim Državama u znak protesta zbog navodne elektroničke špijunaže NSA-e protiv njezine zemlje, uključujući komunikacije u njezinom uredu. U govoru u Ujedinjenim narodima odbacila je argumente SAD-a da je presretanje informacija usmjereno na zaštitu nacija od terorizma, trgovine drogom i drugog organiziranog kriminala.

The Mexican government has called the alleged spying on the emails of two presidents, Enrique Pena Nieto, the incumbent, and Felipe Calderon, as “unacceptable”. US officials have begun a review of American intelligence gathering amid the international outcry.
