The father of US fugitive intelligence leaker Edward Snowden reached out to his son on Russia's national television Wednesday, telling him he did not mind if he stayed in Russia as long as he is safe. 

Demonstrators in Berlin, July 27, 2013, hold a placard showing US fugitive Edward Snowden during a protest against the US National Security Agency (NSA) collecting German emails, online chats and phone calls. Snowden's father reached out to his son on Russia's national television Wednesday, telling him he did not mind if the intelligence leaker stays in Russia as long as he is safe.

"Edward, I hope you are watching this. Your family is well. We love you. We hope you are healthy, we hope you are well, I hope to see you soon, but most of all I want you to be safe. I want you to find a safe haven," Lon Snowden said in an interview broadcast on Rossiya24 channel.
