MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro avoided the answer whether he will take Edward Snowden with him by airplane.

Maduro took this question with irony and replied, “What we will take with us, this is numerous agreements, which we will sign with Russia, particularly in the oil and gas sphere.”

Earlier on Tuesday WikiLeaks has reported that former CIA employee Edward Snowden has sent applications for political asylum to authorities of more than 20 countries.

Applications for political asylum were sent to a number of countries, including Russia, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Venezuela, Germany, India, Ireland, Spain, Italy, China, Cuba, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Poland, Finland, France and Switzerland, WikiLeaks said.

To some countries, in particular Iceland and Ecuador, applications were sent more than once.
