Sir Alan Duncan, secretary of state for Europe and the Americas in Britain, said Wikileaks founder Julian Assange would face justice in Britain, saying the case was now in the hands of the judiciary.
In a statement published by the British government, Duncan expressed his gratitude to the Ecuadorian government for the measures it has taken, stressing that this was followed by intensive talks between the two countries and expressed his aspiration to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the United Kingdom and Ecuador in the coming years.
British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on Thursday thanked Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno for his cooperation with Britain to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London.
The President of Ecuador had announced the withdrawal of the asylum granted to Assange in 2012; for violating the conditions of asylum, paving the way for the police to enter the Embassy of Ecuador in London and the arrest of Assange.
Assange, who has embarrassed the United States after publishing a large number of classified documents, has turned to the Ecuadorian embassy in London to escape attempts to extradite him to Sweden on charges of sexual harassment.
