Ecuador: WikiLeaks Releases “Statement on UK Threat to Storm Ecuadorian Embassy”

WikiLeaks has released a “Statement on UK Threat to Storm Ecuadorian Embassy and Arrest Julian Assange.” The statement reads: “In a communication this morning to the government of Ecuador, the UK threatened to forcefully enter the Ecuadorian embassy in London and arrest Julian Assange. [...] This threat is designed to preempt Ecuador’s imminent decision on whether it will grant Julian Assange political asylum, and to bully Ecuador into a decision that is agreeable to the United Kingdom and its allies.” James Albury has been live-streaming from outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
