Former CIA employee Edward Snowden, who is wanted in the United States for leaking secret state surveillance programs, has denied supplying information to the Russian or Chinese governments, according to a report in Britain’s Guardian newspaper.

“I never gave any information to either government, and they never took anything from my laptops,” Snowden said as part of interviews conducted Tuesday and Saturday with the Guardian.

The comments from Snowden are the first time the fugitive intelligence contractor has spoken publicly since he arrived in Moscow on a June 30 flight from Hong Kong.

The interviews with Snowden, 30, were conducted online via a “secured chat channel,” Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who spoke with him, told RIA Novosti. Greenwald is closely linked with Snowden, and was one of the original few journalists to whom Snowden leaked information.
