Edward Snowden's father does not believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin will "cave" after President Barack Obama canceled a meeting with him.

"These games of 'Well, I'm not going to go to this meeting,' or 'I'm not going to go to that meeting,' … I do not believe that President Vladimir Putin will cave to that," he said in a lengthy interview with Reuters.
