EU Parliament “Shocked” At NSA “Bugging” Diplomatic Offices; Threatens Trade Talks

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, said he was “deeply worried and shocked about the allegations of U.S. authorities spying on EU offices” made in a report published Sunday by Der Spiegel. The latest round of NSA ‘transparency’ suggests U.S. intelligence agents bugged EU offices on both sides of the Atlantic, leaving some EU lawmakers calling for concrete sanctions against Washington – calling for an immediate investigation into the claims and suggesting that recently launched negotiations on a trans-Atlantic trade treaty should be put on hold. “If the media reports are accurate, then this recalls the methods used by enemies during the Cold War,” notes one German minister, adding that, “it is beyond comprehension that our friends in the United States see Europeans as enemies.” Schulz concludes, “It would be an extremely serious matter which will have a severe impact on EU-US relations.”

Spying ‘Out of Control’: EU Official Questions Trade Negotiations

Senior European Union officials are outraged by revelations that the US spied on EU representations in Washington and New York. Some have called for a suspension of talks on the trans-Atlantic free trade agreement.

Europeans are furious. Revelations that the US intelligence service National Security Agency (NSA) targeted the European Union and several European countries with its far-reaching spying activities have led to angry reactions from several senior EU and German politicians.

“We need more precise information,” said European Parliament President Martin Schulz. “But if it is true, it is a huge scandal. That would mean a huge burden for relations between the EU and the US. We now demand comprehensive information.”
