The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, denied having former CIA agent Edward Snowden aboard his presidential plane, which was flying from Moscow and was forced to land in Vienna, and had faith that he would soon be able to continue his trip back to Bolivia after changing flights in the Canary Islands.
Morales went on to claim that he "never saw him (Snowden)" and clarified that his country was not planning on giving him asylum seeing as they had not received any formal petition from the former agent.
defense Minister Rub��n Saavedra, who was with Morales, accused the United States Government of having forced the presidential plane's landing by using their influence on several European countries.
