European powers have pressed the US and Denmark over reports the two worked together to spy on top European politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Denmark's Defence Minister, Trine Bramsen, did not confirm or deny the report but told AFP news agency that "systemic eavesdropping of close allies is unacceptable".
She was not in charge of the ministry during the alleged spying. Mrs Merkel said she agreed with Mr Macron's comments, but that she was also reassured by the Danish defence minister's condemnation. Intelligence was allegedly collected on other officials from Germany, France, Sweden and Norway.
Those nations have also called for explanations. Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg told public broadcaster NRK: "It's unacceptable if countries which have close allied co-operation feel the need to spy on one another. The NSA is said to have accessed text messages and the phone conversations of a of prominent individuals by tapping into Danish internet cables in co-operation with the FE.
