Correa: US' Biden asked Ecuador not to give Snowden asylum
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa on Saturday said the United States asked him not to grant asylum for former US spy agency contractor Edward Snowden in a "cordial" telephone conversation he held with US Vice President Joe Biden.

 

Correa said he vowed to respect Washington's opinion in evaluating the request. The Andean nation says it cannot begin processing Snowden's request unless he reaches Ecuador or one of its embassies. (Reuters)
