In Ecuador said that Assange can not always be in their Embassy
MOSCOW, 26 Aug — RIA Novosti. Foreign Minister of Ecuador, josé Valencia stated the need to resolve the situation with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is hiding from the British authorities in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
“The question of asylum, which was agreed at the time, it is necessary to solve, as it cannot be in the eternal refuge. However, it is difficult to predict how long it will take for this decision,” said Valencia in an interview with ABC. So he answered the question about the possibility of failure in the future Assange asylum from Quito.
The diplomat urged to discuss the problem in the framework of international law with three parties: the UK government, the government of Ecuador and Assange’s lawyers.
He also recalled that under the terms of asylum, Assange can’t make political statements, and to say anything that puts at risk the relationship between Ecuador and other countries.
Assange is in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012. On the political asylum he requested of fear of being ekstrudirovannyy Swedish authorities in the United States in connection with his activities in WikiLeaks.
In late March, the government of Ecuador has deprived Assange of communication with the outside world.
According to authorities, the behavior of the WikiLeaks founder and his social media posts threaten the country’s improved relations with great Britain, EU countries and other States.
Some media reported that Assange may be denied further asylum. However, official confirmation from Quito was not. Assange lawyers concerned about the silence of the Ecuadorian authorities on its future.
Assange is in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012. He appealed to the Ecuadorian authorities with a request for political asylum out of fear of extradition by Swedish authorities in the United States in connection with his activities in WikiLeaks.
