In a follow up to a story we covered yesterday, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday they expected the US and Danish governments to present explanations over allegations Washington spied on European allies with Copenhagen’s aid. Reports in 2013 that the NSA listened in on German government phones, including Merkel’s, prompted a diplomatic spat between Berlin and Washington that soured otherwise good relations with then-President Barack Obama’s administration. Merkel at the time declared that “spying among friends” was unacceptable but there were also reports at the time that Germany’s own BND intelligence agency may have helped the US spy on other European companies and officials.
