Ecuador refuses to negotiate with the British authorities over Julian Assange Britain | news



The British government has stated that it wants to discuss the status of asylum status of the Wikileaks founder in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

While the Australian was in the Embassy since 2012, he was granted asylum, Ecuador's Foreign Minister Jose Valencia said they would not intervene in the talks about his situation.

Mr Valencia said that the only duty of the Embassy was his well-being after Mr Assange had sued Ecuador for new conditions imposed on him

The Foreign Minister said: "Ecuador has no responsibility to take further steps.

"We are neither the lawyers of Assange nor representatives of the British Government.

"This is a matter between Assange and Great Britain."

Ecuador's new position is an amendment to its previous protocol to continue the dialogue with the British authorities regarding Mr Assange.

Mr Assange was granted asylum in Ecuador in 201

2, after the United Kingdom intended to extradite him to Sweden so that he could be questioned by Swedish authorities about sexual harassment.

Sweden dropped the case against him.

However, some of its supporters have expressed fears (19659002) WikiLeaks has previously released US military and diplomatic secrets, and Assange is now under investigation by a US grand jury.

Ecuador recently launched Mr Assange's asylum requesting him to pay for medical bills and phone calls, and the obligation to clean up his cat.

Mr Valencia expressed his frustration over Mr Assange's decision to sue an Ecuadorian court last week.

He said: "There is no obligation in international agreements for Ecuador to pay for things like Mr. Assange's lingerie."

Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno also said that asylum is not asylum He expressed his concern over the possible extradition of Mr Assange to the United States.

Mr Valencia said that he had not yet discussed Mr. Assange's situation with the US.

In December 2017, Ecuador granted Assange citizenship and attempted to designate him as a member of their diplomatic mission to the United Kingdom and Russia to secure safe passage from the embassy.

The United Kingdom rejected her request.
