Venezuelan officials said Tuesday that they have received a formal request for asylum National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden, who has been trapped in legal limbo in the transit lounge of Moscow international airport since last month.
Asked about possible U.S. reprisals if Venezuela were to take Mr. Snowden in, Mr. Maduro said, "The U.S. doesn't govern the world. We're a free and sovereign country."
Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro in Caracas said late Monday that "an asylum request letter arrived" from Mr. Snowden, according to Spain's EFE news agency.
