MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Bolivia did not get an official request from the former CIA technical analyst Edward Snowden for granting a political asylum to him, Bolivian ambassador to Moscow Maria Luisa Ramos.
“We don’t have any official document from one or another lawyer or any other proxy from him,” she said.
As she spoke about a possibility of Bolivia’s consent to granting an asylum to Snowden, she quoted President Evo Morales who said that Bolivia has a sovereign right to analyze the requests it gets.
“No other country has the right to impose its decisions on Bolivia in what concerns granting political asylums to some or other purpose,” he said. “Like any other country Bolivia has the right to take decisions of this kind all of its own.”
“Also, President Morales said that each individual in the world has the right to request asylum and the governments should consider these situations,” she said.
