WASHINGTON, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - The White House expresses hope that the Russian government will “look at all options available” to expel Edward Snowden back to the United States to face espionage charges, National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said on Monday.
According to her, the US also expressed displeasure over the fact that the authorities of Hong Kong and China had let Snowden flee. “Such behavior is detrimental to U.S.-Hong Kong and U.S.-China bilateral relations,” Caitlin Hayden said.
As reported earlier, Russian law enforcers have no grounds to detain CIA's ex-agent Edward Snowden, according to a source in law enforcement agencies. "Snowden is not on a wanted list internationallylist, which might be a ground to detain him. Neither did he commit any unlawful acts in the territory of the Russian Federation," the source explained.
According to latest data, Snowden remains in the transit zone of the Sheremetyevo airport where he is awaiting a flight to Havana, an aiport official said. "He did not go through the border control, i.e. formally he did not cross the border," the source said.
