Quito: Ecuador´s president said Thursday that conditions have been met for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to leave the country´s embassy in London, which would end a more than six-year-long standoff with British authorities.

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

It was not immediately clear what Moreno meant by "near-liberty." He did say that Britain had guaranteed that the Australian would not be extradited to any country where his life is in danger.
