Ecuador’s foreign minister has blamed Britain over the stalemate surrounding WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange following rekindled attempts to secure his safe exit from Quito’s embassy in London.

“On the issue of mediation, I have to say very honestly that it has not been successful because two parties are needed to mediate,” Maria Fernanda Espinosa, the Ecuadorian foreign minister, told reporters Friday with respect to the Assange case, Agence France-Presse translated.

“Ecuador is willing but the other party is not,” she added, referring to Britain, according to Reuters. []
