"It's of great regret that Julian Assange remains in the Ecuador embassy", junior minister Alan Duncan said during a question-and-answer session on foreign affairs in Parliament's House of Commons.

Ecuador has cut off the internet connection to Julian Assange at its London Embassy after the WikiLeaks founder criticized the United Kingdom and its allies for expelling Russian diplomats following the poisoning of a former Russian spy.
The government said Assange had signed a written document in late 2017 where he pledged not to send messages that might affect Ecuador's worldwide relations.
"His behaviour, with his messages on social networks, puts at risk our good relations" with Britain and the European Union, the Ecuadoran government text said.
Mr Assange, 46, has spent much of his time in his small room in the embassy tweeting and at times contributing to RT, a Russian state-owned television channel that broadcasts Kremlin messaging, as well as taking part in media conferences via video link.
Assange says the real reason for his legal troubles is the fact that WikiLeaks published US diplomatic and military secrets, and fears that if he leaves the embassy he risks being extradited to the United States.
"It's about time that this miserable little worm walked out of the embassy and gave himself up to British justice", he told reporters.
Lenin Moreno, who took office in May 2017, has called Assange "a hacker".
Assange's internet access was also interrupted in 2016 after a WikiLeaks dump targeting Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
Ecuador in December made Assange an Ecuadoran citizen and unsuccessfully tried to register him as a diplomat with immunity as part of its efforts to have the WikiLeaks founder leave the embassy without risk of being detained.
"The important thing is to continue to dialogue with Britain to find a definitive and lasting solution to this situation that the current government has inherited from the previous administration", she said.
