Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, knows something about secrets and what happens when they're exposed.
He has some advice for Edward Snowden, who recently leaked information about the extent of U.S. electronic surveillance programs.
"I would strongly advise him to go to Latin America," Assange told CNN's AC360 Monday night. "Latin America has shown in the past 10 years that it is really pushing forward in human rights. There's a long tradition of asylum."
Assange spoke from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been holed up for almost a year.
Ecuador's government granted him asylum in August, but British authorities have said they will arrest him if he leaves the premises
