If the spying report is real, this is not acceptable between allies, and even less between allies and European partners, said Macron after a French-German summit meeting held via videoconference between Paris and Berlin.

‘I am attached to the bond of trust that unites Europeans and Americans,’ Macron said, adding that ‘there is no room for suspicion between us.’

‘That is why we are waiting for complete clarity. We request that our Danish and US partners provide all information on these revelations and on these past facts. We are awaiting these answers,’ he said.

In an investigative report on Sunday, Danish public broadcaster Danmarks Radio (DR) and other European media outlets said the US National Security Agency (NSA) had eavesdropped on Danish underwater internet cables from 2012 to 2014 to spy on top politicians in Germany, Sweden, Norway and France.
