Brazil Cancels U.S. Visit
Brazil President Dilma Rousseff said Tuesday she has postponed a planned state visit to the United States over allegations that the National Security Agency has spied on her government. "The illegal act of intercepting communications and data of citizens, businesses and members of the Brazilian government constitute a serious act which threatens national sovereignty and individual rights, and which is incompatible with democratic coexistence between friendly countries," said a statement from Rousseff's office. In a statement from the White House, spokesman Jay Carney said President Obama "understands and regrets the concerns (that) disclosures of alleged U.S. intelligence activities have generated in Brazil."
