Ecuador Delivers Blow to Snowden’s Chances of Gaining Asylum There

Edward Snowden, the leaker of sweeping U.S. surveillance, is running out of options as he waits in legal limbo at a Russian airport.

Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa said Monday his country is not considering Snowden’s asylum request and never meant to get involved, the Guardian reports.

That means Snowden’s fate rests largely in the hands of Moscow officials, who have tried to distance themselves from the case since the former NSA contractor landed at a Russian airport from Hong Kong. 

“Are we responsible for getting him to Ecuador? It’s not logical,” Correa told the Guardian. “The country that has to give him a safe conduct document is Russia.”

Moscow confirmed Monday that Snowden had applied for asylum in Russia, among other countries, but officials there have expressed hesitance about getting involved.
