BRUSSELS, August 2 (Itar-Tass) - The North Atlantic Alliance that is responsible, in particular, for cyber security of European countries, has declined to comment on Russia’s provision of temporary asylum to Edward Snowden, the NATO press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
It stressed that it’s a matter of bilateral relations between Russia and the United States.
At the NATO summit in Lisbon in November 2010, a decision was made that the Alliance would be in charge of cyber security of its member countries.
Ex-CIA employee Snowden has exposed in the media the facts of cyber espionage by the United States against the European partners in NATO and the EU institutions, including from the territory of the US mission to this organisation. The headquarters of the North Atlantic Alliance has consistently refused to comment on the matter.
