German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday said remain over surveillance even as US President Barack Obama pledged to have 'cyber-dialogue' on the issue to address gaps between the two countries over data monitoring and intelligence gathering.

"We have a few difficulties yet to overcome," Merkel said in a joint news conference with Obama at the White House.
