The United States and Germany on Tuesday set up a procedure to address disputes over intelligence-gathering that have soured relations between the two close allies and resulted in Germany's expulsion of the CIA station chief in Berlin. The initiative followed talks in Berlin between top aides of President Barack Obama and Chancellor Angela Merkel to address anger at U.S. surveillance practices disclosed by former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden.
