Edward Snowden calls on Emmanuel Macron to grant him asylum in France

In an interview aired Monday, the National Security Agency whistleblower said he applied for political asylum in 2013, after he leaked documents showing the extent of the NSA's domestic surveillance, and he would "love it" if President Emmanuel Macron granted it, reports Reuters.

French Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet said at the weekend she supported granting asylum to him, though she made clear she was speaking in a personal capacity and it was not an official offer.

Snowden, now living in Russian Federation to avoid prosecution in the United States, stressed in an interview broadcast Monday on France's Inter radio that "protecting whistleblowers is not a hostile act" and that he feels entitled to get protected status in France.

Snowden's memoir, telling his life story in detail for the first time, will be released Tuesday in about 20 countries, including France. "Welcoming someone like me is not an attack on the United States".
