The fugitive Snowden was granted
asylum in Russia last year after exposing details of massive U.S.
intelligence-gathering programs at home and abroad. It is considered
unlikely that he would set foot in any U.S.-allied country like Germany
because of the risk of being arrested and extradited.
But in a report, the German government made clear it had no wish to see
Snowden come to testify in parliament as this "would have a significant
negative impact on the German-American relationship, particularly on
cooperation with U.S. intelligence".
