MEXICO CITY, October 21. (Itar-Tass). — The Mexican Foreign Ministry condemned the new evidence of alleged spying over the country’s officials by U.S. intelligence.
“The Mexican government strongly condemns the spying practice over communication tools and internet activity of the country’s state agencies and its citizens,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It added that such cases were completely unacceptable, unlawful and contrary to international legislation.
Thus the Mexican Foreign Ministry reacted to an article published by Germany’s Spiegel magazine. The publication says NSA “has been spying the email of Mexican ex-president Felipe Calderon (2006-2012) and the correspondence of several cabinet officials”.
The Foreign Ministry notes in its statement that “President Barak Obama during a recent meeting with Mexican leader Enrique Pena Nieto pledged to conduct a thorough investigation (into the facts of alleged NSA spying over Mexican officials) and identify the responsible for this practice”. Washington’s intention to carry out the investigation was confirmed several days ago by State Secretary John Kerry during his talks with Mexican Foreign Minister Jose Antonio Meade.
In early September, Mexico’s Foreign Ministry addressed a note to U.S. authorities pointing out the necessity to investigate the alleged facts of NSA’s wiretapping of Pena Nieto while he was presidential candidate and then president.
Earlier, Mexican media published facts that the NSA was using special software to spy in several Latin American countries. Media reported that these activities were aimed at collecting confidential data in military and energetic fields, as well as data on fighting drug trafficking.
