Ecuador President: Julian Assange Saga Could Be Drawn Out For ‘Months And Years’

Ecuador President Rafael Correa told the BBC on Thursday that the standoff involving Julian Assange “could be ended tomorrow” if Great Britain provided the Wikileaks founder with safe passage to Ecuador.  

Absent a resolution by Friday, Correa said the situation “could go on for months and years.”  Assange was granted asylum at Ecuador’s London embassy in June and has remained there ever since.
