Swedish prosecutors can question Assange inside Ecuador's embassy in London
Ecuador said Thursday it's ready to set a date for Swedish prosecutors to question Julian Assange inside its London embassy — a potential breakthrough in the yearslong international impasse over the WikiLeaks founder.
Assange is wanted for questioning by Swedish police over alleged sexual offences stemming from his visit to the country in 2010.
He denies all the accusations against him made by two women.
In June 2012, he sought shelter in Ecuador's embassy in the British capital and has been holed up there ever since.
Ecuador announced last year that it had agreed to a Swedish proposal to interview Assange at the embassy, but no interview has taken place.
Ecuador's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that a date for the questioning in the embassy would be set "in the coming weeks."
