"A person can not live in those conditions for ever", Ecuador's foreign minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa has been quoted as saying.
"What naturalization does is provide the asylum seeker another layer of protection", Espinosa said.
Assange's time living under political asylum in Ecuador's embassy has been controversial.
Swedish prosecutors dropped their probe into the allegations but British police said Assange would be arrested for breaching bail conditions if he left the embassy.
Assange became an Ecuadorian citizen on December 12, 2017, Chinese news agency Xinhua quoted Ms Espinoza as saying.
It was an extraordinary development in the prolonged diplomatic standoff, and came only hours after Britain said it had rejected a request by Ecuador to grant Assange diplomatic immunity so he could leave the embassy.
"Ecuador knows that the way to resolve this issue is for Julian Assange to leave the embassy to face justice", said a British Foreign Office spokesman. "There are well-founded fears we have about possible risks to his life and integrity, not necessarily by the United Kingdom but by third party states".
Assange has been ensconced in the Ecuadorian embassy for over five years to escape possible extradition to Sweden after he was accused of sexually assaulting two women.
Earlier in the week Mr Assange posted a picture of himself in an Ecuadorean football shirt, fuelling rumours that he had been issued an Ecuadorean passport.
"We have reminded Mr Assange that he has no reason to interfere in Ecuadorian politics because his status does not allow it", Moreno told a Spanish newspaper.
There were reports in newspapers in Quito that he had recently been granted a national identity number. Unfortunately for Assange, neither Trump nor Putin have indicated they will help him out. In a big step toward resolving this issue, Ecuador's government has chose to grant Assange citizenship.
"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", Espinosa said.
A United Nations panel concluded in 2016 that Assange was under arbitrary detention.
