U.S. denied any intentions to “pursue” the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange and denied having pressured Great Britain to stop him.
“Regarding the charge that the United States sought to pursue him, I reject it completely,” said State Department spokesman, Victoria Nuland to media reporters.
Nuland declined commenting on the asylum granted to Assange by Ecuador and rejected claims made by the Ecuadorian government about Assange needing protection against the United States.
The Assange Case “is an issue between the countries involved and we do not plan to interpose,” Nuland said. MZ
