German Chancellor Angela Merkel, reportedly the target of US snooping on her mobile phone, said Thursday that such conduct between friends was unacceptable.
"Spying between friends, that's just not done," Merkel said as she arrived for a two-day European Union summit where the growing spy scandal has hijacked the agenda.
"I said that to US President Barack Obama when he came to Berlin and again on the phone (Wednesday)," Merkel said.
"We need trust between partners and such trust needs to be re-established," she added.
