European Allies React to US Spying Revelations

Hosted by

One revelation from Edward Snowden was that the National Security Agency tapped the personal phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Today, leaders of the European Union finished a two-day meeting, where American spying overshadowed economic concerns. President of the European Council, Van Rompuy, echoed their concern that "the partnership must be based on respect and on trust, including as concerns the work and cooperation of secret services." Peter Spiegel is Brussels Bureau Chief for Britain's Financial Times.
