INDIA SUMMONS US ENVOY ON SPYING CLAIM

0

NEW DELHI: India summoned the top diplomat from the US embassy on Wednesday to complain for the third time about spying, following new allegations that Washington’s National Security Agency (NSA) targeted its ruling party. “What we have said is that we expect a response and an assurance that this won’t happen again,” a foreign ministry source told Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity. A new classified document made public by the Washington Post on Monday showed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party was among authorized targets for the NSA in 2010 while it was India’s main opposition. India has complained to the US on two previous occasions, in July and November 2013, over other revelations.
