By Robin Emmott and Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff pressed ahead on Monday with plans to lay an undersea communications cable directly to Europe to reduce Brazils reliance on the United States following reports that Washington spied on Brasilia. At the annual EU-Brazil summit, Rousseff is seeking to define financing for the $185 million project that could be in place next year in an effort to shield Brazils Internet traffic from U.S. surveillance, EU and Brazilian officials said. We are working on the financial architecture for a fiber-optic link that would be a direct connection between Brazil and Europe, said one official as Rousseff arrived in Brussels for talks with the presidents of the European Commission and European Council.
