Assange: Fit enough to stay in London's Ecuadorean embassy for another five years

London, June 18 : WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said that he is fit enough to spend another five years in the Ecuadorean embassy.

According to the Guardian, Ecuador foreign minister Ricardo Patiño said that neither London nor Quito was showing any signs of backing down and Assange's situation is totally 'unjust'.

Assange who has been holed up in the embassy for nearly a year faces prosecution over sexual and criminal charges to which he denies.

Patiño said that Assange has been depraved of liberty and feels that he should be handed over into a safe conduct so that he can leave UK for elsewhere.

Ecuador foreign office has said that British and Ecuadorean legal experts would try to resolve the impasse adding that the ministers have agreed that officials should establish a working group to find a diplomatic solution to Assange's political asylum issue, the report added.
