Swedish prosecutor, Ingrid Isgren, has arrived at Ecuador's embassy to question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over a sex allegation.
Swedish police will also be present as questions are put to Assange by an Ecuadorian official inside the country's embassy in London.
Assange was granted political asylum by Ecuador in 2012 and has lived in their embassy ever since.
He insists that if he leaves, he will be extradited to the US for questioning over the activities of Wikileaks.
Assange has always denied the allegations against him, and has offered to be interviewed at the embassy several times.
Ecuador's foreign minister, Guillaume Long, has welcomed the move.
Swedish prosecutors will interview Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy next Monday over allegations of rape, it has been announced.
"Ecuador has granted the Swedish request for legal assistance in criminal matters and the interview will be conducted by an Ecuadorian prosecutor," the Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement.
The meeting could break a long deadlock between Swedish authorities and the Wikileaks founder that has seen Assange spend more than four years holed up inside the embassy to avoid extradition proceedings.
The Swedish assistant prosecutor, Chief Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren, and a Swedish police investigator have been allowed to be present at the interview. They will report the findings to Sweden.
