Right Now, a latest news coming from the Internet media that German Chancellor Angela Merkel calls Obama to confirm-US tapped my mobile phone?
Merkel talked Obama on Wednesday and Berlin is taking this issue seriously, according to Der Spiegel.
The information we got from Internet is—Merkel asked for a thorough explanation about her phone tapping, let’s read what Der Spiegel reported:
|The chancellor asked for a thorough explanation of serious indications that US intelligence agencies had declared her private mobile phone to be a target in their operations.
Merkel made it clear that, should these indications turn out to be true, she "unequivocally disapproves" of such methods and finds them "totally unacceptable," her spokesman Steffen Seibert said. "This would be a grave breach of trust," he added. "Such practices must immediately be put to a stop."
During her conversation with Obama, Merkel expressed her expectation that "US authorities would provide an explanation about the possible extent of such surveillance practices, and thus answer questions that the German government already posed months ago," Seibert said.
"As a close ally of the United States of America, the German government expects a clear contractual agreement on the activities of the agencies and their cooperation," he added.
One of the spokesman of US Security council told Spiegel:
“The President assured the Chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of Chancellor Merkel.”
