Merkel: Europe needs ‘private communication’ get by NSA




There should be a ‘European communications’ are protecting the privacy better. This is suggested by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “It should not be necessary that people get their e-mails and other communications across the Atlantic to send,” said Merkel.

Europa vlag Europese What Merkel exactly mean by a ‘European communications network’ is not clear, but at least she stresses that Europeans must be able to communicate without the use of American Internet use writes the BBC.

Merkel then not probably refers to the replacement of the Internet, but rather the establishment of Internet services. Merkel also turned against the practice of Facebook and Google settle in countries with low standards of privacy and operate from these countries in countries with stringent privacy laws. The European headquarters of Facebook and Google are based in Ireland, which has a relatively smooth privacy laws. Germany, like Netherlands stricter privacy laws.

Merkel, who was also tapped by the NSA, will raise the issue Wednesday when she is visiting French President Francois Hollande. The French government would welcome the idea. France has in the past, a dislike of American Internet show, not only because of privacy issues, but also because the internet giants pay little tax, while advertising revenues steal from local businesses.
