MOSCOW, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - U.S. Embassy in Moscow has refrained from commenting on the situation around the former CIA technology analyst Edward Snowden, who has been granted political asylum in Russia, or on a possible cancelation the Russian-U.S. talks in Washington in the two plus two format.
An official at the embassy told Itar-Tass all the comments on the situations are made in Washington and not by the diplomat in Moscow. Nor did he give any information of the consultations the U.S. Ambassador, Michael McFaul is holding with Russian representatives.
U.S. Department of State spokesperson Marie Harf said Thursday night that in the light of Russia’s decision to grant Snowden asylum, “it behooves us to evaluate where the relationship /between the U.S. and Russia - Itar-Tass/ is.”
