Diplomat: Obama promises US probe into reported spying on Mexico presidential email system

Mexican diplomat says Obama promises NSA probe

GENEVA (AP) -- Mexico's top diplomat says President Barack Obama has promised an investigation into spying the U.S. reportedly did on Mexico's presidential email system.

Secretary of Foreign Affairs Jose Antonio Meade says that Obama "gave his word that there is going to be an investigation" during conversations with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Meade told reporters Tuesday in Geneva that Obama also said "he had not authorized any spying on Mexico."

Meade says it is "an abuse of trust" if the National Security Agency accessed a domain linked to former Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his Cabinet, as reported by German magazine Der Spiegel.

A document from June 2012 also has indicated that the NSA read Pena Nieto's emails before he was elected.
