LONDON (AP) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says there's no guarantee his bid for political asylum from Ecuador will succeed.
Assange was spending a third night inside Ecuador's London embassy on Thursday. He told Australian Broadcasting Corp radio via phone that he decided to turn to Ecuador after his native Australia refused to intervene in his planned extradition from Britain to Sweden.
He says Wikileaks, which specializes in revealing government secrets, had "heard that the Ecuadorians were sympathetic in relation to my struggles and the struggles of the organization with the United States."
Assange indicated he doesn't know when Ecuador will decide on his case.
Assange has been fighting since 2010 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sexual misconduct. He denies the allegations.
