Rousseff puts spy scandal behind her with US visit

During a trip to the US, Brazil's first female president, Dilma Rousseff will visit New York, Washington and San FranciscoBrasília (AFP) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff arrives in the United States on Saturday for a long-delayed visit, looking to shore up economic ties almost two years after scrapping a trip following revelations that Washington spied on her. At the time Rousseff called off her October 2013 visit, the chill between the Western hemisphere’s two largest economies was the worst diplomatic fallout to date from Edward Snowden’s leaked trove of embarrassing US intelligence secrets. Both sides have emphasized that the new trip — a five-day tour that has been labelled an “official visit” rather than the top-tier “state visit” she postponed — shows the countries have moved past the damaging revelation that the National Security Agency spied on Rousseff’s cell phone communications and Internet use.
