BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — French President Francois Hollande has criticized the United States' spying practices involving its allies.
After meeting with Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, Hollande said through an interpreter Tuesday that the U.S. National Security Agency should not be monitoring the communications of such countries and their leaders.
Hollande said the U.S. is cooperating with Europe on fixing this eavesdropping problem but declined to give details.
Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have pledged to press the U.S. to end this year the alleged spying on foreign leaders, businesses and innocent citizens.
The French leader said that it is necessary for Europe to have measures in place that would protect its citizens.
