Europe 'united' over U.S. spying case says Letta
'Strong' reaction led by France and Germany25 October, 10:30
"We have taken a strong, united position in order to get information over the next few weeks and clarification from the USA," Italian Premier Enrico Letta said after Germany and France led a push for a stiff reaction to reports that the NSA spied on 35 world leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, as well as the Italian government.
"We are working with France to find a solution," Merkel said at the end of the Brussels summit.
The US has said the NSA is not snooping on its allies but has not said it did not.
