HELSINKI (Sputnik), Svetlana Alexandrova – France needs to investigate US National Security Agency (NSA) espionage practices, Yves Pozzo di Borgo, a member of the French delegation to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Parliamentary Assembly (OSCE PA), told Sputnik.
"I think it is a big problem. Americans are spying on everyone. The problem is that no one in Europe is properly addressing the issue and confronting the United States concerning the espionage allegations. France needs to respond to the scandal and at least to follow the German example," Pozzo di Borgo said Tuesday.
The inquiry was closed a year later due to lack of evidence, according to the office of German Federal Prosecutor Harald Range.
Despite probe's drop, the prosecutor's office announced that an investigation into widespread spying of German telecommunications data by British and American intelligence agencies would continue.
