You're reading: UK says Assange asylum wouldn’t change anything

LONDON - Britain told Ecuador on Thursday,Aug. 16, that giving Julian Assange asylum would not change anything and that it was too early to say whether it would revoke the diplomatic status of Quito's embassy to allow the extradition of the WikiLeaks founder.

“It is too early to say when or if Britain will revoke the
Ecuadorean embassy’s diplomatic status,” a Foreign Office
spokesman said by telephone.

“Giving asylum doesn’t fundamentally change anything,” the
spokesman said, adding that Britain had a legal duty to
extradite Assange to Sweden where he is wanted to stand trial
for rape.
