Britain is in high-level talks with Ecuador in an attempt to remove Julian Assange from its London embassy, where he has been sheltering for more than six years.
Ministers and senior Foreign Office officials are locked in discussions over the fate of Assange, the founder and editor of WikiLeaks, who claimed political asylum from Ecuador in 2012 and who believes he will be extradited to the United States if he leaves the embassy in Knightsbridge, central London.
Sir Alan Duncan, the Foreign Office minister, is understood to be involved in the diplomatic effort, which comes weeks before a visit to the UK by Lenin Moreno, the new Ecuadorean president, who has called Assange a “hacker”, an “inherited problem” and a “stone in the shoe”.
Last year US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Mr Assange’s arrest was a “priority”, while CIA director Mike Pompeo said: “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”
Despite the strong words, there remains no public criminal case against either Mr Assange or his organisation.
After losing a bid to overturn a UK arrest warrant, it is unclear how the controversial whistleblower will come to leave the Ecuadorian embassy
How do you feel about Assange Neo?
Do you think Trump should pardon him and allow him to seek refuge in the US? (

Yet one wonders why Assange was kissing trumps behind so much?
Maybe the first three letters of his last name, aren’t ass for nothing
