Brazil cancels advance team trip for state visit to U.S.

BRASILIA, (Reuters) – Brazil has canceled a trip by an advance team to Washington to prepare for a visit by President Dilma Rousseff that might be called off after revelations the United States spied on her private communications.
Brazil’s presidential palace said yesterday it canceled a trip by an advance team of logistical planners, security personnel and protocol officers that was due to leave for Washington this weekend to start preparing the Oct. 23 state visit. No reason was given for the cancellation.
The White House said President Barack Obama might meet with Rousseff on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Russia to discuss the latest revelations of spying by the U.S. National Security Agency that have set off a diplomatic crisis.
