October 29, 2013

The energy minister in the British shadow government "Caroline Flint" condemned the CIA involvement in phone spying of more than 200 world leaders, including the leaders of 35 countries, saying that this is unacceptable.

Flint's comment reflects the division within the British Labour Party on spying, party leader Ed Miliband refused to condemn this, criticizing at the same time the publication of secret documents that could threaten national security. On this subject, Flint said: "I do not think it is acceptable to use intelligence to spy on our allies and those who collaborate with us through international organizations in the field of defense and many other fields , seeking to establish rules about how the security services work.
