The United States said it would share more
information with Germany from its secret intelligence gathering,
German officials said after a meeting Friday at the White House.
U.S. officials pledged in the meeting to begin a "declassification process," so that German officials are better informed, according to a spokesman for German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich.
Friedrich met with Lisa Monaco, President Barack Obama's chief counterterrorism advisor. Vice President Joe Biden joined the meeting at one point, Friedrich's spokesman Jens Teschke told dpa. The two sides emphasized the need for balance "between security and freedom," Teschke said.
Friedrich met earlier with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. There has been no official U.S. comment.
