Biden in Brazil to see World Cup, heal strained ties

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden delivers a speech at the UN-controlled buffer zone in NicosiaBy Anthony Boadle and Brian Winter BRASILIA/SAO PAULO (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden heads to Brazil on Monday, hoping to do more than just watch Team USA play Ghana in the World Cup. Biden will also try to turn the page on chilly U.S. relations with President Dilma Rousseff, who was outraged by revelations last year that the National Security Agency spied on her and other Brazilian officials. Brazil’s left-leaning leader told reporters she was eager to reschedule her Washington trip – but only if she gets a “strong signal that (spying) won’t be repeated.” That comment sent officials in Washington scrambling to figure out precisely what she’s looking for. In response to the uproar over NSA spying in Brazil, Germany and elsewhere, President Barack Obama said in January that the United States would no longer spy on heads of state of allied countries.
