US State Secretary Justifies Spying on Brazil, Calls to Overlook Privacy Breach
Local Editor

US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated during his visit to Brazil on Tuesday the US would continue to monitor individual and corporate communications in Brazil for security reasons.

In a press conference with the Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota, Kerry urged Brazil not to damage growing trade, diplomatic and cultural relations in wake of the recent revelations of wide scope US surveillance on countries.

"We are convinced that our intelligence collection has positively helped us to protect our nation from a variety of threats," he added.
Moreover, the US Secretary of State called on to overlook the privacy breach and concentrate on bilateral relations instead.

He further vowed that the US would provide more transparency about the surveillance program.

For his part, Patriota called for an end to the controversial program, saying it violated sovereignty and privacy.

"The region and the international community are concerned over the practices which may threaten the sovereignty of countries and the rights of individuals," he stated.

The US surveillance program on both enemies and allies was revealed by former US National Security Agency contractor whistleblower Edward Snowden, who currently lives in Russia after granted a year-long asylum there.
