Brazil leader postpones trip to US over spying
Rio De Janeiro: Brazil`s president has postponed a state visit to Washington in response to US spying.
President Dilma Rousseff said Tuesday she`s not making the trip next month, which was to include a state dinner.
Rousseff has been angered reports based on leaked National Security Agency documents. They`ve shown that her communications with top aides were intercepted.
The NSA espionage program also targeted state-run oil company Petrobras.
Brazil reportedly has been the top Latin American target for spying, with data on billions of emails and telephone calls swooped up in NSA programs.
President Barack Obama called Rousseff late Monday and tried to talk her into maintaining her trip, the Brazilian president`s office said.
But Rousseff was demanding a full public apology from Obama for the spying, which she didn`t get.
