Ecuador and Britain to meet at UN on Assange
United Nations: Foreign ministers from Britain and Ecuador say they plan to meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on the fate of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, as a standoff over his future enters its 100th day.
The two countries said British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Ecuador`s foreign minister Ricardo Patino would hold talks today.
Assange, who is seeking to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning over sex crimes allegations, has been sheltered inside Ecuador`s embassy in London - beyond the reach of British police - since he fled there on June 19.
Ecuador has granted Assange asylum, but he will be arrested by police if he steps outside the building.
Assange yesterday was addressing a sideline meeting at the UN via a videolink from Ecuador`s London embassy.
