Merkel laments breakdown of trust in US spy row

US President Barack Obama (R) and German Chancellor Angela Merkel during a press conference at the Rose Garden of the White House on May 2, 2014 in Washington, DCChancellor Angela Merkel lamented on Saturday the breakdown in trust between Germany and the United States amid a spying row that saw the CIA chief in Berlin expelled from the country. “Here we obviously have different points of view and we need to talk to one another,” Merkel said, adding that she had “naturally hoped for a change” in Washington’s behaviour. The shock move to kick out the US intelligence chief on Thursday followed the emergence of two alleged spying cases within days of each other, re-igniting German fury already on a low boil from another spying scandal last year in which it was revealed that Washington was monitoring Merkel’s phone. A week earlier, a 31-year-old German BND foreign intelligence service operative had been arrested on suspicion of having sold over 200 documents to the CIA.
