BRAZIL CONFRONTS KERRY OVER ALLEGED US SPYING

0

BRASïLIA, Federal District: Brazil warned United States (US) Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) that failure to resolve the row over Washington’s electronic spying could sow mistrust between the two countries. Brazil was outraged by media reports of widespread US phone and Internet eavesdropping based on information leaked by fugitive intelligence contractor Edward Snowden. Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota told reporters after talks with Kerry that revelations about the vast US global surveillance network posed a “new challenge in our bilateral relationship.” “If the implications of this challenge are not satisfactorily resolved, they run the risk of casting a shadow of mistrust over our work,” he added.
