Tehran, YJC. Araqchi has said that so far there has been no request by Snowden to take refuge in Iran.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Araqchi said in an interview with Tasnim "Edward Snowden has so far not requested for refuge in Iran and will surely not do so.”

He asserted "The fact that someone adopts such a position shows the depth of the illegal actions by the US intelligence and security organizations.”
