LONDON, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuela has not yet received “a formal response” to its offer of asylum to Edward Snowden, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua Milano said on Thursday.
“We have not received a formal reply from Snowden,” Reuters quoted the foreign minister as saying in Montevideo where he had arrived for a Mercosur summit.
He said on Tuesday that it is necessary that Snowden state his wish to get asylum in Venezuela, after which it will be necessary to get into contact with the Russian government to make this asylum possible.
"We communicated last week, we made an offer and so far we haven't received a reply," Jaua told Reuters.
According to diplomatic sources, Snowden, wanted in the US on espionage charges, is still stuck in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport. Over the recent days three Latin American countries have offered political asylum to Snowden. However, according to WikiLeaks, he has not formally accepted invitations as of yet.
