German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that allegations of spying by a suspected US double agent are serious, after ministers in her government called for a swift response from Washington.

Merkel made the remarks in a joint press conference with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at Beijing's Great Hall of the People, on her seventh visit to China since taking office in 2005.

Following revelations last year that the US National Security Agency allegedly tapped Merkel's mobile phone, the reports that a German foreign intelligence service employee spied for the US have sparked anger in Berlin.
