Swedish prosecutors have accepted the offer from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to interview him in the Ecuadorean embassy in London.

The 45-year-old Assange faces accusations of sexual assault in Sweden dating back to 2010. He has denied the allegations, which he has suggested are politically motivated, and obtained asylum under that claim.

"In the coming weeks, a date will be established for the proceedings to be held at the Embassy of Ecuador in the United Kingdom," Ecuador's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"For more than four years, the government of Ecuador has offered to co-operate in facilitating the questioning of Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, as well as proposing other political and legal measures, in order to reach a satisfactory solution for all parties involved in the legal case against Julian Assange, to end the unnecessary delays in the process and to ensure full and effective legal protection," the ministry added.

Assange founded his secret-leaking website in 2006. It came to the forefront of public attention most recently in July for leaking documents stolen from the Democratic National Committee. Assange has also expressed concern that leaving the Ecuadorean embassy could also result in his extradition to the United States to face charges over the leaks.
