Brazil, Mexico summon US envoys over spy claims
BRASïLIA (AFP) - Brazil and Mexico have summoned US ambassadors to demand explanations over allegations that the National Security Agency spied on their presidents' communications.
Brazil's Foreign Minister Luis Figueiredo said the interception of Internet data from President Dilma Rousseff reported by US journalist Glenn Greenwald, if proven, "represents an unacceptable and unallowable violation of Brazilian sovereignty."
In Mexico, the foreign ministry said it sent a diplomatic note to Washington calling for an "exhaustive investigation" into claims that the NSA spied on President Enrique Pena Nieto before his election.
Mexico warned that, if true, the snooping would be a "violation of international rights."
