Ecuador's president Rafael Correa acknowledged Friday that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will remain in his country’s embassy in London as long as Britain refuses to give him safe passage out of the country.

"The problem is that they aren't going to give him the safe conduct," Rafael Correa said in a radio interview, adding that "Mr Assange can stay indefinitely in our embassy."

Britain said the Ecuadoran decision changed nothing and that it was obliged under its laws to extradite Assange, who is wanted for questioning in Sweden in a sexual assault case.
