NEW YORK, October 17 (Itar-Tass) - Lon Snowden, the father of former CIA employee Edward Snowden, said on Wednesday he wanted his son to stay in Russia and never return to the United States. Lon Snowden spoke to journalists upon arrival at New York’s John Kennedy International Airport after a trip to Russia to see his son.
He said he liked it very much in Russia and planned to pay another visit to that country, although he did not yet know when.
He also said his son Edward was feeling well and comfortable in Russia. He said he gave Edward his parental advice not to return to the United States, but in any case, it was up to Edward to decide.
Edward Snowden, 30, who is charged with leaking secret data about the US National Security Agency’s (NSA) global surveillance programme, was granted a temporary asylum in Russia after over a month in Sheremetyevo airport’s transit limbo.
