Glenn Greenwald of Britain's Guardian and one of his colleagues were the first to interview the former American spy Edward Snowden after he fled the US with thousands of documents from the National Security Agency (NSA), America’s biggest spy organization.

"I did not do an exact count, but he gave me 15,000, 20,000 documents. Very, very complete and very long," the Brazil-based journalist said on Tuesday.

Snowden revealed documents about the NSA’s global surveillance programs which included spying on America’s European allies, in particular Germany, as well as Latin American states.

"The stories we have published are a small portion. There will certainly be more revelations on the espionage activities of the US government and allied governments (...) on how they have penetrated the communications systems of Brazil and Latin America," he said.

Snowden spent almost five weeks at the transit zone of Moscow’s international airport after arriving there from Hong Kong on June 23. His asylum request for living in Russia was finally accepted last week but Moscow limited the permit to only one year.
