UK wants to resume talks with Ecuador over Assange fate

Help

Britain has written to the Ecuadorean embassy in London to try to resume talks over the fate of Julian Assange, the Wikileaks founder who entered the building two months ago to avoid deportation.

The move comes as the President of Ecuador tells the BBC that the situation could go on "for months and years".

Rafael Correa warned of an indefinite diplomatic row unless Britain grants Assange safe passage to Ecuador.

The BBC's Will Grant reports from Ecuador.
