The German government has received information that U.S. intelligence is spying on the mobile phone communications of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a German government statement said on Wednesday evening.

The German government has requested "an immediate and comprehensive explanation" from Washington, said the statement.

"The Chancellor called (U.S.) President (Barack) Obama today. She made it clear that she unequivocally disapproves such practices should they be confirmed and deems them as completely unacceptable," the statement said.

"Among close friends and partners, as Germany and the U.S. have been for decades, there should be no such monitoring of communications of a head of government," the German government said, adding that "This would be a serious breach of trust. Such practices must be stopped immediately."
