Turkey calls German ambassador over spying claims

Bishkek (AKIpress) - mfa Turkey's Foreign Ministry says the German ambassador has been summoned for talks over reports that Germany's foreign intelligence agency had eavesdropped on conversations between officials in the U.S. and Turkey, both NATO allies.

German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday that the agency, known by its German acronym BND, had listened to calls made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessor Hillary Clinton, the AP reports.

It also cited a confidential 2009 BND document listing Turkey as a target for German intelligence gathering.

A Foreign Ministry official said Monday the ambassador was summoned to "discuss" the report.

The official did not provide details, saying an announcement would be made after the meeting. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of government rules that bar officials from speaking to reporters.
