Conditions met for Assange to leave Ecuador embassy in London: President

Britain promises not to extradite Julian Assange lailasnews

Assange says that he faces charges under seal in the U.S. for revealing sensitive government information on WikiLeaks, though the exact charges against him remain unclear.

Moreno, however, said Britain guaranteed that Assange would not be extradited to a country where his life is in danger.

The 251,000 classified cables from United States embassies around the world - released by WikiLeaks in 2010 and published by leading worldwide newspapers - embarrassed the Bush administration in Washington and caused ructions in its bilateral relations with other countries.

President Lenin Moreno said he had "sufficient guarantees" from the United Kingdom that it would not extradite Assange to face the death penalty in another country, and that Assange faced only a brief sentence in the United Kingdom for skipping bail by claiming sanctuary in the embassy.

President Moreno said the sentence for skipping bail would be "not long".

Assange's statement doesn't preclude extradition on non-capital charges, however, and on November 15, US federal prosecutors accidentally revealed that Assange had been fingered under seal in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Another 16 goals brought Lorenzo Insigne, 13 goals went from Jose Callejon and 11 from Marek Hamšík. Forecasts Bookmakers consider Napoli as the main favorite - the coefficient for the victory of the hosts is 1.28.

"I do not like the presence of Mr Assange in the Ecuadoran Embassy, but we have been respectful of his human rights and with that respect in mind we think that six years is too long for someone to remain almost incarcerated in an embassy", Moreno said. However, the Ecuadorian President has ramped up the pressure on Assange to leave the Ecuadorian embassy.

Assange could be questioned in the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election that brought President Donald Trump to office.

Those fears were heightened when U.S prosecutors last month mistakenly referenced criminal charges against him in an unrelated case. The investigation in Sweden was later dropped, and Ecuador said there were no pending extradition requests against Assange.

Assange sought asylum at the embassy in 2012 while facing allegations of sex crimes in Sweden.

"We will protect Mr. Assange's rights - this is why we are looking for a solution, but this needs to be an agreed solution", he said.

Mr Assange founded WikiLeaks in 2006.
