Obama speaks with Merkel after spy row: US official

US President Barack Obama speaks in McLean, Virginia, on July 15, 2014US President Barack Obama Tuesday spoke to Chancellor Angela Merkel for the first time since a row over US spying prompted Germany to turf out the CIA station chief in Berlin. Ben Rhodes, a US deputy national security advisor, said on Twitter that the two leaders discussed “Ukraine, Iran and US-German cooperation.” Washington signaled on Tuesday that it would consider going ahead with its own new measures against Moscow should Europe remain reluctant to move forward. Reports that two German government employees were being investigated amid claims they were double agents for the CIA rattled US-German relations, which had barely recovered from claims that the US National Security Agency (NSA) had tapped Merkel’s cellphone.
