Addressing Assange's residency in the embassy, Moreno said: "I do not like the presence of Mr. Assange in the Ecuadorean embassy, but we have been respectful of his human rights and with that respect in mind we think that six years is too long for someone to remain almost incarcerated in an embassy". Mr Assange fears being charged by the U.S. for his part in leaking sensitive government information.

"I do not like the presence of Mr. Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy, but we have been respectful of his human rights and with that respect in mind we think that six years is too long for someone to remain almost incarcerated in an embassy", Moreno said.

'The way has been cleared for Mr Assange to take the decision to leave in near-liberty, ' President Lenin Moreno told reporters on Thursday.

Mr Moreno said: "I do not like the presence of Mr. Assange in the Ecuadorean embassy, but we have been respectful of his human rights and with that respect in mind we think that six years is too long for someone to remain almost incarcerated in an embassy".

Federal criminal charges against Assange have been filed secretly in the U.S. and were accidentally leaked in a court filing for an unrelated case several weeks ago.

He also commented on the extraordinary length of time Mr Assange has been living in the embassy.

"We do not see the British changing their point of view, they continue to insist that he appear before the courts", said Valencia. The investigation in Sweden was later dropped, and Ecuador said there were no pending extradition requests against Assange.

In November, WikiLeaks suggested that the United States authorities might have brought sealed charges against Assange, citing a filing in an unrelated case that used Assange's name in an "apparent cut-and-paste error".

Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 when he was granted asylum while facing allegations of sex crimes in Sweden that he said were a guise to extradite him to the US. "We will protect Assange's rights".

Britain s the Guardian newspaper last month reported that Trump s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort held secret talks with Assange, whose organization is accused of leaking thousands of emails allegedly stolen by Russian hackers from the Democratic campaign of Hillary Clinton.

An arrest warrant by the United Kingdom government has been issued to Assange over violating bail conditions by seeking asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy.
