"They believe they own the universe": Rafael Correa comments on US pressure around Assange

The former Ecuadorian president spoke in RT about Washington's pressure on Quito to hand the founder of WikiLeaks to justice.

The former president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa (2007-2017), tells RT his position regarding the current situation of the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, who has been taking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London (United Kingdom) since 2012.
The exmandatario is pronounced after that from the Congress of the USA. They will send a letter to the current Ecuadorian head of State, Lenin Moreno, requesting the expulsion of Assange from the premises and his handing over "before the Court" as a condition to advance the "bilateral relationship" with Washington.
"They think they own the world, the universe," says Correa about the US. "They can not allow anyone to challenge the system," he added, stating that the current pressure around Assange corresponds to a "demonstration effect." "
