Former Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Armando Patino Aroca has accused Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno of “selling the sovereignty of the country” in exchange for international loans, referring to the decision to deprive Julian Assange of asylum..

“It is very clear to us that  Moreno, who is currently acting president of Ecuador, reached an agreement with the United States and handed Assange over to the government of this country,” Patino said in a statement.

“The first goal for Moreno was to get loans from the IMF and the World Bank in exchange for two things, the first was the extradition of Julian Assange, and the second elimination of the process of integration between the countries of South America and Latin America“He said.

“It can be said that he (Moreno) sold the sovereignty of our country and committed treason when he allowed the British police to enter our embassy, ​​which we have protected for a long time since 2012“He said.

The decision to withdraw Ecuadorean citizenship from Julian Assange was illegal, Patino said, as there was no investigation into his alleged violations of the residency requirements at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

The British police arrested the founder of the site “Wikileaks” Julian Assange on Thursday following the announcement by the Ecuadorian authorities to deny asylum in the embassy in London, which was granted to him in 2012 under the former President Rafael Correa.
