MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The letter was written by Konstantin von Notz and Martina Renner from The Greens and The Left respectively, German news agency DPA reported.
"Questioning by video and hearing Edward Snowden in Moscow are not the same as questioning in Berlin," Renner said, adding that deposing Snowden in Russia would present security and protection of information problems.
In 2013, Snowden revealed that the personal communications of dozens of world leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel had been monitored by US intelligence agencies.
The revelations triggered a major public outcry in Germany with Merkel accusing the United States of breaching the trust of its allies.
Snowden has been living in Russia since 2013 after being granted asylum in the country on the basis that he could face spying charges in the United States.
