Australian journalist remains in the Embassy of Ecuador in London for 38 days, waiting for a response to the request for political asylum made to the government of President Rafael Correa.

Yesterday, the BBC News BBC said in recent days would have made meetings between officials of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and judicial authorities in Sweden to interview Assange in the embassy.

Sweden requested the extradition of Australia to the UK to be questioned on alleged charges of sexual offenses being investigated by the Office of the Scandinavian country.

As Assange fears that once in Sweden is sent to the U.S., where face charges of espionage for the filtration of diplomatic cables that country, the founder of WikiLeaks sought refuge in Ecuador.

According to a note from the British newspaper The Guardian, also released yesterday, prompted Ecuador to the United States guarantees that it will not initiate proceedings against Julian Asssange.

Washington has said that the issue of asylum is a matter Assange regards Ecuador, Sweden and the UK, so it does not intervene. The U.S. Department of Justice Wikileaks is investigating leaks by diplomacy.

President Rafael Correa, meanwhile, has repeatedly said that the decision taken by the Government on asylum will be “sovereign.”
