US: Obama Reassures France of Ending 'Unacceptable' Spying Tactics

  • U.S. President Barack Obama has reassured his French counterpart of the nation's commitment to end spying tactics that are considered 'unacceptable' by its allies. In a conversation with French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday, Obama reaffirmed that his government is committed to put an end to such practices that may have happened in the past. Obama's outreach happened after WikiLeaks released documents which allegedly revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) had spied on ex-Presidents of France from 2006 to 2012.
