BBC News - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in BlackBerry talks: "The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will hold talks with the UAE over the ongoing BlackBerry dispute.
The United Arab Emirates is to prevent sending e-mails, accessing the internet, and delivering instant messages to other Blackberry handsets.
Authorities are unhappy that they are unable to monitor such encrypted communications via the handsets.
Mrs Clinton said authorities had to balance 'legitimate security concerns' with 'right of free use and access'.
'We are taking time to consult and analyse the full the range of interests and issues at stake, because we know that there is a legitimate security concern,' Mrs Clinton said.
'But there is also a legitimate right of free use and access.
'So I think we will be pursuing both technical and expert discussions as we go forward,' she added."
