Putin is 'Determined' Snowden Case Will Not Hurt Russia-US Ties

Russia has not handed the NSA whistleblower over to the U.S.


(Reuters)—Russian President Vladimir Putin is determined not to allow a spat over Edward Snowden to hurt ties with the United States, his spokesman said on Friday.

However, the spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said Putin was not involved in talks over the fate of the 30-year-old former U.S. spy agency contractor, who is wanted by the United States on espionage charges and has been stuck at a Moscow airport for more than a month.
