LONDON — Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who was given asylum in the Ecuadorean Embassy here two years ago, said on Monday that he “will be leaving the embassy soon,” but he provided no specifics.
In a long and wandering news conference at which he was accompanied by the Ecuadorean foreign minister, Ricardo Patiño, Mr. Assange summarized his case, arguing that he had helped bring about needed change in the British extradition system and saying that his health was suffering after two years at the embassy.
Mr. Assange faces extradition to Sweden, which is investigating allegations of sexual misconduct, and the British police continue to post a 24-hour guard at the embassy at a cost of more than $10 million.
