America have denied doing anything wrong after Germany has announced that they believe their Prime Minister, Angela Merkel, has had her phone calls bugged.

In response France and Germany have said they want a “no spying” pact with America in place by the end of the year.

The United States already has a “no-spying” deal with Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, that was arranged after World War Two.

In a report leaked last week it was claimed that America had been monitoring the phone calls of at least 35 world leaders.

Spying is used by some countries

Countries do routinely spy on each other, especially if they are enemies, but Angela Merkel has said spying shouldn’t happen between countries who are “friends”.

There are now worries that these spying claims could affect the trust between the US and European countries – and how effectively they work together in their aim to fight terrorism.
