WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama will speak with Russian President Vladimir Putin late on Friday, the White House said, hours after former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden said he would seek temporary asylum in Russia.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the phone call had been scheduled for several days. He said the Obama administration had been communicating with nations around the world that the United States would like Snowden, who has divulged classified information about secret surveillance programs, to be returned to face charges in the United States.

Snowden has been in limbo at a Moscow airport since arriving from Hong Kong on June 23.
