"We're considering, exploring the possibility of a mediation", Foreign Minister Maria Fernanda Espinosa told foreign reporters yesterday, adding that a third country or person could lead a potential mediation.

Describing Assange's situation as unsustainable, she said that Ecuador will continue to approach the United Kingdom in a "very, very respectful way" to find a solution.

Ecuador is exploring options to secure safe passage for WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange from its London embassy, the country's FM said. President Lenin Moreno has described Assange as a "hacker", while stressing he would not be kicked out of the embassy.

SpaceX says its rocket did the job Sunday, even as rumors swirl that the satellite on board was lost shortly after launch. The mission was SpaceX's first launch of 2018 and the company's third classified launch for the USA government.

Assange has received numerous warnings from the newly elected Ecuadorean president requesting the journalist refrain from commenting on politics of the nation's allies.

"If President Moreno wants to gag my reporting of human rights abuses in Spain he should say so explicitly - together with the legal basis", he said.

WikiLeaks' publications have included hundreds of thousands of USA army war logs and state department diplomatic cables and more recently emails from the Democratic National Committee during the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Assange, who denies all the accusations, said that once he was in Swedish custody the United States would pressure Stockholm into handing him over for prosecution based on WikiLeaks' publication of classified documents.

Assange moved into Ecuador's embassy in London in 2012 to avoid arrest over now-dropped Swedish rape charges.

The Foreign Minister said that Ecuador remains committed to ensuing Assange's safety. "I think the government is looking for a way out".
