Venezuela ofrece asilo a Snowden

Tamaño de texto Aa Aa

El culebrón Snowden tiene un nuevo capítulo: Venezuela. Nicolás Maduro, desafía a EE.UU y ofrece ““asilo humanitario” al exanalista de inteligencia Edward Snowden.

Lo ha anunciado durante la celebración de Declaración de Independencia de Venezuela hace 202 años.

Mientras Ecuador sigue jugando a la indefinición y asegura que sigue estudiando la petición de asilo, también el presidente de Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, se ha subido al carro y se ha mostrado dispuesto a dar asilo al filtrador, “con mucho gusto, si las circunstancias lo permiten”.

El bloque de países bolivarianos han adoptado una estrategia conjunta de desafío al gigante norteamericano, algo que suele darles rentabilidad en las urnas.

Y también en Santa Cruz, en el consulado estadounidense de Bolivia, se han quemado banderas como signo de protesta por el incidente diplomático que vivió su presidente, Evo Morales, quien siguió acusando a España desde Cochabamba de exigir la revisión de su avión y participar en la retención de trece horas que sufrió en Viena ante la sospecha de que Snowden pudiera viajar con él.
