The United Nations has received assurances from the US Government that its communications networks "are not and will not be monitored" by American intelligence agencies, it said.
But chief UN spokesman Martin Nesirky would not comment on whether the world body had been monitored in the past, as reported recently by the German magazine Der Spiegel.
Mr Nesirky said the UN had been in contact with Washington about the reports that surfaced two months ago and has received a guarantee from the US of no current or future eavesdropping.
