China and a number of South Asian governments have demanded an explanation from Washington over allegations that US embassies – as well as embassies of US allies – were used for NSA surveillance.

  The diplomatic row has been caused by the Sydney Morning Herald’s  report, which said the NSA collected its data in Asian countries  by having its equipment installed inside US embassies and also in  the diplomatic missions of the other ‘Five Eye’ nations, which   includes Australia, Britain and Canada.  

  Beijing said it was “extremely concerned” by the news and  was seeking clarification from the US. 

“We also demand that foreign embassies in China and their  staff respect the Vienna Convention … and other international  treaties and not get involved in any activities which do not  accord with their status or post and harm China’s security and  interests,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Hua  Chunying, said on Thursday.   

  The news of the data collection facilities operating out of the  embassies in Jakarta, Bangkok, Hanoi, Bejing, and Dili was based  on the documents leaked by NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden.
