MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – "The agreement, without any doubt, is a tool that strengthens bilateral relations and facilitates, for example, the execution of such legal actions as the questioning of Mr. Assange, isolated in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London," the ministry said in a statement.
Assange is wanted for questioning by Swedish authorities since 2010 on accusations of sexual coercion and rape. In April, he consented to the prosecutor’s conditions for the interrogation procedure.
The WikiLeaks founder argues that Sweden’s rape charges are a ploy to extradite him to the United States, where he is wanted for publishing thousands of leaked top-secret military documents and diplomatic cables.
Assange, an Australian national, launched the WikiLeaks website in 2006. Since then, the site has released millions of classified papers.
