Washington warns Snowden may only travel to the US
Edward Snowden, who is accused of espionage after leaking secret information, was offered asylum by Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Venezuela
The US Government keeps in touch through relevant diplomatic channels with all countries Snowden could travel across or choose for his final destination, said White House's spokesperson Jay Carney, EFE reported.
Carney's statement has been the first official US reaction after Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Venezuela recently offered Snowden asylum.
Carney further explained there were sufficient legal arguments for Russia to expel Snowden to the United States, despite the lack of any extradition bilateral treaty.
