Following President Correa’s re-election as President of Ecuador on Sunday (17 February 2013), the Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I congratulate the people of Ecuador and President Correa on their successful elections, and welcome the high turnout and the peaceful atmosphere on election day. The UK and Ecuador have a valuable bilateral relationship and we look forward to further work with the Ecuadorean Government across a range of areas.
The UK remains fully committed to seeking a diplomatic solution with the Ecuadorean Government to secure Julian Assange’s extradition to Sweden.
