But new allegations of US eavesdropping on Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel may also be discussed.

Germany has summoned the US ambassador in Berlin to explain, after claims arose in the German media that her mobile phone calls had been bugged.

France's President Francois Hollande is pressing for the issue to be put on the summit agenda, following reports that millions of French calls have been monitored.

The veteran French EU Commissioner Michel Barnier told the BBC that "enough is enough", and confidence in the US had been shaken.


Thanks, Obama.

While lots of Bush's problems overflowed onto Obama's plate, I never understood blaming him for the Obama administration's foreign relations. They're completely independent.

One thing I have to say about Bush though, most heads of states loved the guy personally.

That's because Bush is a genuinely good guy. Not a great president but I'd love to catch a ball game with the guy, if his Rangers could make the playoffs, that is...

If you think spying problem starts from Obama era, you must be really naive.

Chances are it started way long ago, probably even before Bush. Information is power, just don't get caught.
