According to WikiLeaks, the leaked files include conversations between French officials about issues such as the international financial crisis, Greece’s debt and the future of the European Union.

PARIS (Sputnik) – France will not tolerate any actions that could jeopardize its security, the Elysee Palace said in a statement Wednesday after an emergency meeting dedicated to reports that the US National Security Agency (NSA) spied on the country’s presidents.

On Tuesday, WikiLeaks began publishing documents claiming to prove that the NSA had intercepted the communications of French President Francois Hollande and his predecessors Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac, as well as other top French officials, for six years.

“France will not tolerate any actions jeopardizing its security and defense of its interests,” the statement said.

The statement also added that Washington must adhere to the assurances it gave after the NSA’s mass surveillance was revealed in 2013.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has summoned the US ambassador in Paris after it emerged that the United States was spying on French presidents, local media reported Wednesday.
