Germany has spied on Turkey since 1976 - Focus magazine

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's foreign intelligence agency has been spying on Turkey for nearly four decades, Focus magazine said on Saturday in a report which could raise tensions further between the NATO allies. The details about the duration of possible surveillance and on the decision-making surrounding it go further than first reports earlier this week. Turkey summoned Germany's ambassador in Ankara on Monday after media reports that Berlin had identified Ankara as a top target of surveillance in a government document from 2009 and had been spying on Turkey for years. #facebook #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #markets #Italy #Turkey #Latin America #Mexico #german
