Mérida, 28th June 2013 (Venezuelanalysis.com) – Diplomats from Russia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Cuba will meet in Moscow on Monday to discuss the situation of U.S. intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.
On Monday diplomats from Russia and the three leftist Latin American countries will meet with human rights activists in the Russian Public Chambers, a consultative body linked to the Kremlin, ”to give a social evaluation of the situation,” a Public Chambers spokesperson said.
Last night Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro also appeared to further open the door to Snowden, stating that if an asylum request was made, Venezuela would be willing to offer the whistleblower protection.
“No one has requested us asylum for him [Snowden], but if he wants, Venezuela is willing to protect this brave young man in a humanitarian way, so that humanity knows the truth,” Maduro said at an event in the presidential palace.
