WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says a top aide to President Barack Obama has told Brazil's top diplomat that there are legitimate questions about U.S. spying on friends and allies.
Obama's national security adviser, Susan Rice, met Wednesday with Brazilian Foreign Minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo at the White House.
The meeting comes as Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is demanding answers about whether the National Security Agency intercepted her communications and is threatening to cancel a U.S. visit. Rousseff said after meeting with Obama last week in Russia that Obama promised explanations.
The White House says Rice told Brazil's foreign minister that the press has distorted some of the surveillance activities. She says other reports raise legitimate questions about how American capabilities are employed and have created tensions in the U.S.-Brazil relationship.
