Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff postpones state visit to U.S. over NSA spying
Question of the Day
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has postponed a state visit to Washington in response to U.S. spying.
Ms. Rousseff said Tuesday she’s not making the trip next month, which was to include a state dinner. She has been angered by reports based on leaked National Security Agency documents that show her communications with top aides were intercepted.
The NSA espionage program also targeted state-run oil company Petrobras.
President Obama called Ms. Rousseff late Monday and tried to talk her into not changing her plans, the Brazilian president’s office said.
But Ms. Rousseff demanded a full public apology from Mr. Obama for the spying, which she didn’t get.
