Ban was apparently attending a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss ways on how to tackle climate change, a subject that has become controversially debatable in recent years.
“Today, we showed that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s private meetings over how to save the planet from climate change were bugged by a country intent on protecting its largest oil companies,” WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange said on Tuesday.
“We previously published Hillary Clinton orders that US diplomats were to steal the Secretary General’s DNA,” Assange added.
“The US government has signed agreements with the UN that it will not engage in such conduct against the UN, let alone its Secretary General. It will be interesting to see the UN’s reaction, because if the Secretary General can be targeted without consequence then everyone from world leader to street sweeper is at risk,” he noted.
