Pres. of Brazil Blasts US at UN for Spying on It; Calls NSA Spying "Espionage," Breach of Intl. Law

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff -- who last week canceled a high-profile state visit to the U.S. scheduled for October due to reports that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) had been spying on Brazil and her email -- yesterday criticized the U.S. for international spying, at a UN General Assembly meeting, the Newsmax World website reports today (September 25, 2013).

She also announced that Brazil would adopt legislation and technology to protect it from U.S. spying.

At yesterday's General Assembly meeting, Rousseff launched a blistering attack on U.S. spying, calling espionage among friendly nations "totally unacceptable."

"Meddling in such a manner in the lives and affairs of other countries is a breach of international law and, as such, it is an affront to the principles that should otherwise govern relations among countries, especially among friendly nations," Rousseff told the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations.
