US vows to work with Germany after new spy row

White House spokesman Josh Earnest gives a daily briefing on August 21, 2013 in Washington, DCThe United States tried to cool Monday a new spy row with Germany after Chancellor Angela Merkel warned reports an alleged German double agent helped the CIA could again damage trust between the allies. Revelations that a 31-year-old German intelligence operative was suspected of espionage revived suspicion between Berlin and Washington which had barely ebbed following reports last year the US National Security Agency (NSA) tapped Merkel’s cellphone. Merkel, who was furious over the previous US-Germany espionage row sparked by fugitive leaker Edward Snowden’s revelations, said during a visit to Beijing that if the reports were correct, “it would be a serious case.” Washington, in line with normal practice on espionage issues, declined to comment on the report.
