Today Rafael Correa, the president of Ecuador, qualified as ‘rude and intolerable’ the ‘threat’ made by the United Kingdom in his letter. The document states the possibility of entering the Ecuadorean embassy in London to apprehend the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, after Ecuador gave him asylum.
The statement came after the asylum was granted, Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino, pointed out that he received a letter in which the British government mentions the possibility of arresting Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy so he can be extradited to Sweden.
“Never, at least when I am president, this Ecuador will take threats in the way of those presented by the United Kingdom this week, which are totally rued, inconsiderate and intolerable,” said Correa in his weekend report. AV
