Ecuador's foreign minister, Maria Fernanda Espinosa, subsequently said that Assange would not leave the embassy in the absence of security guarantees.
The Government of Ecuador recently requested diplomatic status for Mr Assange here in the UK.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gestures on the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy prior to speaking, in London, Friday May 19, 2017. He added that, as the South American authorities know, the only way for Assange to resolve is to leave the embassy and face the court.
"What naturalisation does is provide the asylum seeker another layer of protection", she told reporters in Quito.

Assange's legal team this week reiterated its demand that London abide by the United Nations ruling declaring him to be unlawfully and arbitrarily detained and calling for him to be freed and compensated.
A United Nations panel had observed in 2016 that Assange was under arbitrary detention.
"The problem for both sides is that neither wants to lose face: Assange wants to be a symbol of resistance against an overreaching US state, and does not want to admit his asylum was about his personal actions and not those of WikiLeaks". It would have enabled him to walk out of the embassy without fear of arrest.
