Today, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe asked US President Barack Obama to investigate alleged spying by American security agencies on the government and corporate officials in Japan.

Obama first apologized over the suspected eavesdropping by the National Security Agency (NSA) on a telephone conversation, the government spokesperson Yoshihide Suga said.

Suga also said that the Japanese PM Abe was conversing with Obama that if the spying allegations are true then it could shake the trust between alliance partners and also that he has no choice but to express our grave concern.

It was also seen that towards the end of July, WikiLeaks had published some documents which say that the NSA has been spying on Japanese government and on some firms since 2006 when the Abe was first elected to power.

Besides the reports, the WikiLeaks has also published the NSA list containing 35, “High Priority” Japanese targets for the telephonic interception. The website has also issued some documents which revealed that the US is allegedly spying on other nations too like Germany, France and Brazil.
