Brazilian President condemns NSA spying
President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, addressed the UN General Assembly, lashing out at the National Security Agency's reported spying on Brazil.
"Meddling in such a manner in the lives and affairs of other countries is a breach of international law and, as such, it is an affront to the principles that should otherwise govern relations among countries, especially among friendly nations," she said.
She went on to say Brazil would adopt legislation and technology to protect itself from illegal interception of communication by the U.S. Just last week, Rousseff postponed a high-profile state visit to the U.S. that had been scheduled for October after reports of the NSA's spying had been circulated.
