Juncker: ‘I don’t know if German agents are active here’

“One day I said at a College meeting that we should have a secret service, because agents are here,” European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker jokingly said, after allegations by the German press that Germany’s national intelligence agency spied on top French officials and the EU’s headquarters on behalf of US intelligence.

“I don’t know if German agents are active here, although I don’t want to make specific comments, although I’m a kind of specialist in secret services, I know they are very difficult to be kept under control,” Juncker added.
