MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) -- Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro declined to answer a question about whether or not the former CIA technical expert Edward Snowden might be granted political asylum in Venezuela.
“The important thing in Snowden’s case is how the whole world will react to the situation, to what this young man who’s asking for justice and fairness has done,” Maduro said.
He recalled that Venezuela and Russia had signed five agreements earlier in the day.
“Today we’re working in fourteen areas and discussing 63 issues,” he added. “We’re working intensively to develop our relations with Russia.”
