Assange's'eviction may be a result of his disagreement with Ecuador's President

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange becomes a citizen of Ecuador more than five years after moving into its London embassy to escape arrest, over a rape investigation that he claims is linked to his whistle-blowing activities. However, speaking to RT last week, a spokesman for the Ecuadorian embassy, where Assange has resided since 2012, confirmed that the Australian was still in the building and his health status remains unchanged.
Espinosa says her country is seeking solutions, saying the situation "is not sustainable".
Espinosa informed that in December, the Ecuadorian government requested a diplomatic "protected" status for Assange, but the United Kingdom rebuked the request.
However, he continues to fear extradition to the USA and he faces arrest for breaching bail conditions if he steps outside onto British soil.
"No solution will be achieved without worldwide cooperation and the cooperation of the United Kingdom, which has also shown interest in seeking a way out", she said.
Ecuador was obliged to give him protection as "long as the life, integrity of this protected person could be at risks and danger", she said, adding that her government was exploring other options to resolve the seven-year standoff.
They would continue to look for alternatives, under worldwide law, to resolve the situation.
Ms Espinosa said Ecuador had granted Assange citizenship while it looked for a "dignified" solution to his situation with Britain.
His name appeared on Ecuadorian Internal Revenue Service, and his file read "the citizen/taxpayer has no information registered in the database or recorded by third parties", according to the paper.
Shortly after that news emerged, Assange, 46, posted a picture of himself on social media, dressed in the nation's colors of Ecuador. The Vienna convention on diplomatic relations states that someone who holds a diplomatic passport is immune from prosecution. If he is granted diplomatic immunity, authorities fear he might evade the law.
This headline and story were updated on January 11, following the announcement that Ecuador had granted Assange citizenship.
