The US government has told the United Nations it will not monitor the global body's secret communications, the UN spokesman said Wednesday without confirming reports of past spying.

UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said the United Nations contacted the United States about the reports. "I understand that the US authorities have given assurances that United Nations communications are not and will not be monitored," Nesirky told reporters.
