The fugitive US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden says he would love to get asylum in Switzerland.
He was speaking via video link to a Geneva audience, from Moscow where he is sheltering from US prosecutors.
"I would love to return to Switzerland, some of my favourite memories are from Geneva," he said. Previously he worked in Geneva undercover for the CIA.
Mr Snowden, wanted for leaking US secrets, said US authorities had given him no assurances of a fair trial.
"The only thing they've said at this point was that they would not execute me," he said. "That's not quite the same thing as agreeing to a fair and open trial."
