Brazil wanted US to apologize for spying activities

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) -- Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff says she would have gone on a scheduled state visit to Washington in October if the United States had apologized for espionage by the National Security Agency and promised not to do it again.

Rousseff cancelled the state visit after classified documents leaked by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden showed that her communications with aides were intercepted, that the NSA hacked the computer network of Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras and scooped up data on emails and telephone calls flowing through the country.

Rousseff made her remarks on Wednesday during an interview with the RBS news group of the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.
