Assange said he looks forward to having a conversation with the US Justice Department regarding his return to the United States if they drop the case against WikiLeaks and its publishers, unseal any extradition requests and charges.
"I stand by everything I said, including the offer to go to the United States if Chelsea Manning’s sentence was commuted," Assange stated on Thursday. "It’s not going to be commuted until May; we can have many discussions to that point."
The WikiLeaks founder also said a return to the United States is possible as long as the US government ensures his are protected.
Assange added he is confident of winning any case in the United States if the law is respected because WikiLeaks is a publisher whose activities are protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
