"It is unacceptable between allies," French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said, shortly before an emergency meeting called by Hollande with his security chiefs.

"It is difficult to accept that between allies... there can be this kind of activity, particularly related to wiretapping linked to the president of the Republic," Le Foll said.

France is to convene a meeting of its defense council today after the communications - classed as "Top Secret" and revealing spying on Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac from 2006 to 2012 - were published online by WikiLeaks, in partnership with French newspaper Liberation and the Mediapart website.
