Brasilia, October 8 (RHC)-- Brazilian Foreign Minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo expressed his rejection and indignation for espionage activities carried out by Canadian embassies in his country.
Figuereido demanded an explanation from Canada's ambassador to Brazil regarding information aired by a Brazilian TV channel that the Canadian Security Agency was spying on electronic and telephone communications of Brazil’s Mines and Energy Ministry.
This is a serious and unacceptable violation of Brazil’s national sovereignty and of the rights of the people and companies, said a communiqué issued by the Brazilian Foreign Ministry.
Brazil’s official reaction to the issue came after the O Globo TV Channel revealed documents contributed by U.S. National Security Agency’s former analyst Edward Snowden.
On her twitter account, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff condemned the espionage by the Canadian agency and she said that such action affirms the economic objective of such activities. Rousseff called on the United States and its allies to immediately put an end to such practices.
