Foreign Office: Giving Assange asylum doesn't change anything

The Foreign Office said that giving Julian Assange asylum would not change anything and that it was too early to say whether it would revoke the diplomatic status of Ecuador's embassy.

It is too early to say when or if Britain will revoke the Ecuadorean embassy's diplomatic status.

"Giving asylum doesn't fundamentally change anything," the spokesman said, adding that Britain had a legal duty to extradite Assange to Sweden.
