Kerry warns China, Russia of consequences over Snowden
It would be "deeply troubling" if either China or Russia had notice of whistleblower Edward Snowden's travel plans, US Secretary of State John Kerry said, and warned of consequences for ties with both countries, dpa reported.
"It would be deeply troubling obviously if they (China, Russia) have adequate notice and notwithstanding that they make a decision wilfully to ignore that and not live by the standards of the law," Kerry said in New Delhi.
"I would urge them (Russia) to live by the standards of the law because that's in the interest of everybody."
He added: "In the last two years, we have transferred seven prisoners to Russia that they wanted, so I think reciprocity and the enforcement of the law is pretty important".
