SHORTER: Could Edward Snowden ruin America’s biggest trade deal with Europe?
NEW YORK, July 6, 2013 – Edward Snowden’s claim that the National Security Agency spied on European allies is likely to impact the U.S.-EU free trade talks that has the potential to create millions of jobs and add over $280 billion a year across both economies. The former NSA contactor and CIA employee says that the United States conducted covert surveillance on 38 foreign embassies and missions in Washington and New York. France wants to delay talks, Germany is doubtful about doing business with America and EU officials warns that the Snowden’s allegation are likely to have consequences.
