Ecuador recalls UK envoy to discuss Assange's asylum bid
Sydney, June 23 (ANI): Ecuador has recalled his ambassador to the UK in order to discuss the case of Julian Assange, who has sought refuge in their diplomatic mission in London.
"We are calling our ambassador back for consultations because this is a very serious matter," Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa said.
Assange sought refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy as he seeks to avoid extradition to Sweden on allegations of rape, fearing Stockholm will turn him over to the United States.
Correa stressed that Ecuador is 'going to proceed cautiously, responsibly and seriously in this case, without bowing to absolutely any pressure,' News.com.au reports.
According to the report, the Ecuadorian envoy, Ana Alban, met with British authorities on Wednesday, and Correa said they had had a 'very courteous communication with the English government on their point of view.'
"We will take it into account, but Ecuador will make the final decision" on whether to grant Assange's request," he added. (ANI)
