‘America spies on Merkel with Danish help’ – World

From 2012 to 2014, the United States spied on several European politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with the help of Danish intelligence. The Danish and European media reported this on Sunday.

Danish broadcaster Danish Marks Radio (DR) reports that the US intelligence agency NSA has tapped Danish Internet cables to spy on prominent politicians and senior officials in Germany, Sweden, Norway and France. The NSA made good use of a surveillance cooperation with the Danish military intelligence service, the FE.

It was suggested some time ago that the United States was spying on many European countries by tapping the Danish cable. DR, Swedish channel SVD, Norwegian channel NRK, German channels NDR and WDR, newspaper Suditch Zeitung and Le Mont magazine investigated the spy operations.

According to DR, the matter will be reported to Danish Defense Minister Train Bramson, who took office in June 2019, in August 2020. ‘Proper espionage by allies is unacceptable,’ Brahmson told DR.

Even after the Snowden revelations

The list of people hit by the NSA includes Angela Merkel, then-German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and later opposition leader Peer Steinbrook. Americans have access to text messages, phone calls, and Internet traffic, including searches, chats, and email services.

The intelligence was detailed in a classified internal report codenamed “Operation Dunhammer” and submitted to the top management of Danish intelligence in May 2015, D.R.

The revelations, the broadcaster said, were based on the intelligence of nine sources who had access to classified information from the FE, and were independently confirmed by several sources. U.S. espionage, if confirmed, happened during the Snowden case. It exploded in 2013 when Edward Snowden, a former NSA CIA operative and organization administrator, revealed that the US government was spying on its own citizens and allies.

Ask for an explanation

France, through its Secretary of State for European Affairs, Clement Beyonc, has called for clarifications from the United States and Denmark. ‘This is so bad. It is clear that our Danish partner in the EU has made mistakes in cooperating with US services, “Peon said.” As far as Washington is concerned, “see if there really is. Political leaders have survived and spied. “The minister did not reject the idea of ​​’drawing the consequences of cooperation’.

Berlin, Stockholm and Oslo also claim to have heard explanations in less powerful terms than Paris.
