US-Denmark spying allegations 'extremely serious' if proven, French Europe minister says

Media reports alleging that the US spied on top politicians in Europe with the help of Danish intelligence are "extremely serious" if proven, the French government said on Monday. "It is extremely serious, we need to see if our partners in the EU, the Danes, have committed errors or faults in their cooperation with American services," Europe Minister Clement Beaune told France Info radio.
