Cia dating foreigners
And more than 300,000 Chinese students were studying in the U. alone during the 2014-2015 school year, a record number.
Although that explosion of foreign exchange has many benefits, it also has made Communist Party authorities nervous.
The German Foreign Ministry has not commented on the latest revelations, which come shortly after Wiki Leaks revealed the NSA had allegedly spied on top German politicians for decades.
German Green Party parliamentarian Hans-Christian Ströbele demanded an explanation from the government and secret service in light of the latest revelations.
The new documents paint a picture of an apparent years-long NSA effort to spy on the German Foreign Ministry, dating back to before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The documents reveal a list of 20 phone numbers the NSA targeted for monitoring, two of which were assigned to Steinmeier as well one number potentially assigned to Joschka Fischer, Germany's vice chancellor and foreign minister from 1998 to 2005.
It is unclear with whom Steinmeier was speaking at the time, but the subject of the call was the US Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) controversial renditions program.
It was alleged that the US had used the airspace and airport facilities of cooperating European countries to illegally abduct European citizens and residents in order to interrogate them at secret "black site" prisons.
The country had 848,500 foreign residents in 2013, up from 507,000 in 2000, according to a study issued last year by the Center for China and Globalization, a Beijing think tank.
In 2008, Steinmeier again denied Germany had in any way supported the rendition flights at a parliamentary hearing, calling such accusations "utter nonsense." "Today's publication indicates that the NSA has been used to help the CIA kidnap and torture with impunity.
For years the CIA was systematically abducting and torturing people, with the tacit complicity of European governments," Wiki Leaks founder Julian Assange said in a statement.
The leaks show Merkel's private and professional opinions on a range of issues.
() Germany's foreign minister has called on Washington to swiftly clarify what is and is not true regarding the latest NSA snooping allegations.
