UN intervention sought after wiretapping case breakout
This news story comes just two days after the discovery of the German authorities that the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has fallen herself victim of telephone tapping by the NSA
The first international initiative to silence the "Big Brother" of the National Security Agency in the U.S. (NSA) comes from the UN as Germany and Brazil are leading an effort to adopt a resolution that will ensure users' right to privacy.
According to diplomatic sources involved in this initiative, the German and Brazilian governments have asked formally the international organization to protect the electronic contacts of citizens around the world.
This news story comes just two days after the discovery of the German authorities that the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has fallen herself victim of telephone tapping by the NSA.
About a month ago, the president of Brazil from the UN podium, had renounced wiretapping by the National Security Service of the U.S. highlighting that ‘they violate international law’ and requested that the General Assembly of the Organization establish guidelines to shield the Internet from cyberattacks.
The exclusive publication of Foreign Policy also states that German and Brazilian diplomats met in New York with other government representatives from Latin America and Europe to put their touch to a resolution calling for a shield over the electronic world.
The report also reveals that apart from Brazil and Germany, Mexico, France and Italy participate in this effort as well.
The revelation of the British "Guardian" that the NSA except citizens watched 35 government leaders too, who are not named, has delivered a major blow to the image of Barack Obama.
'Europe is no longer in love with Obama,’ a CNN article comments, adding that the discomfort of the European citizens for the American president are increasing and, as shown by the developments, his popularity will drop dangerously.
