Foreign ministers from the American continent have urged Britain andEcuador to peacefully end the standoff over the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange.

Assange, who is wanted in Sweden for questioning on sex allegations, has been granted political asylum by the South American country and has spent the last two months holed up in its London embassy.

The UK government has made it clear the Australian activist will be arrested and extradited if he steps outside the building after jumping bail.

Ecuador also claims that Britain has threatened to storm the embassy and detain 41-year-old Assange in a move that would violate diplomatic conventions.

The Organisation of American States (OAS) met in Washington on Friday to discuss the situation and passed a motion backing the “inviolability of diplomatic missions”.

Senior officials from the 34-member bloc also urged the two sides to continue a dialogue to resolve the row.

The UK government has warned that it can legally enter the embassy and arrest Assange under the 1987 Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act, but the foreign secretary, William Hague, has said there is no intention of “storming” the building.

Britain’s determination to arrest the WikiLeaks founder was laid bare on Friday by a document that revealed police had been told to detain him “under all circumstances” if he steps outside the embassy.

The paper, captured by Press Association photographer Lewis Whyld, was recorded at a briefing and appears to order officers to make the arrest if Assange attempts to leave in a diplomatic bag or vehicle.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “The document is one officer’s notes from a briefing. Our objective is to arrest Julian Assange for breach of bail. Under no circumstances would any arrest be made which was in breach of diplomatic immunity.”

Assange is refusing to travel to Scandinavia amid fears he will be extradited to the United States over his controversial website. Ecuador granted the Australian political asylum last week.

Ambassadors from several South American countries went to the embassy on Friday.

An embassy spokesman said: “This display of support for the Ecuadorian government by South American ambassadors is a clear indication of the level of support Ecuador has amongst countries in America and a clear statement opposing the UK government’s threats against the integrity and sovereignty of its embassy in London.”

Ecuador’s president has said the diplomatic row “could be ended tomorrow” if Britain gave the activist safe passage to South America.

Rafael Correa said: “This could end tomorrow if the UK grants safe passage, or it could go on for months and years if Mr Assange can’t leave the embassy of Ecuador in London.”

Plans to seize Julian Assange “under all circumstances” the moment he leaves the Ecuadorean embassy in London have accidentally been revealed by a police officer displaying restricted documents outside the embassy.

The document, pictured under the officer’s arm by a Press Association photographer, appears to advocate arresting the WikiLeaks founder whether he leaves the building in a diplomatic bag or in a diplomatic car.

The handwritten plan was recorded at a police briefing and only partially covered by the officer’s arm as he arrived at the embassy in Knightsbridge on Friday.

The brief begins: “BRIEF – EQ. Embassy brief – Summary of current position Re Assange. Action required – Assange to be arrested under all circumstances.” It then makes reference to a “dip bag” and a “dip vehicle”.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “The document is one officer’s notes from a briefing. Our objective is to arrest Julian Assange for breach of bail. Under no circumstances would any arrest be made which was in breach of diplomatic immunity.”

Assange, who has been in the building for two months, is wanted for questioning in Sweden over claims of sexual assault.

He is refusing to travel to Scandinavia amid fears he will be extradited to the United States over his controversial website. Ecuador granted the Australian political asylum last week.

The UK government has made it clear Assange, who denies the allegations, will be arrested if he steps outside the embassy after jumping bail.

Speculation has been rife about possible escape routes, and Assange’s legal team and the Ecuadorean government have talked about the possibility of safe passage to Ecuador.

Ambassadors from several South American countries went to the embassy on Friday to show their solidarity with Ecuador.

The British government has threatened, under a 1987 Act, to enter the embassy and arrest the 41-year-old, but foreign secretary William Hague has said there is no intention to “storm” the building.

Ecuador’s president has said the diplomatic row “could be ended tomorrow” if Britain gave the activist safe passage to South America.

About ottwf

The capitalistic and imperialistic system and its systematic aims: profit and power over others, still dominates our world and not the aims of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as 1948 agreed! After the world-economic-crisis after 1929 and the following World-War the world hat decided with agreeing the Universal Declaration of Human rights, to create a new world order; conflicts should be solved with peaceful means, not nations and their power, but the dignity of human beings around the world should be the aim of the policies and the economy, of every state and the community of states. But soon after the end of the war, when the victims and destruction were forgotten, all continued as before, with all risks, we had seen before. The split in rich an poor is getting bigger and bigger. We also overuse our global environment already, even if the big majority of mankind still lives in poverty! We are not victims, this world is men-made and be changed from men and women! It will be possible, if those, who do not want or serve (because of system-pressure) profits first, but want for themselves and everybody a life in human dignity unite and develop in a global base-democratic movement a common vision for our world, and learn, how to make this vision real. We need for it a big empowerment of many, many common men and women and their activities. Our chances are because of new communication technologies, of common languages, of the level of education and the mixture of people from different backgrounds better then ever. The occupy-movement is a good start for such a global movement. We support it and try to contribute to its success! We choose news and make comments and so try to unite people for an Occupy-Think-Tank: Its tasks: creating a news-network, self-education, working on global-reform programs and learning to organize projects for those, who are suffering. Join us, so that we can build teams for these aims for all subjects and countries as a base for the unification. We have Wan(n)Fried(en) in our name, because it means When peace and it is a modification of the name of the town our base is, in Wanfried, a small town in the middle of Germany, where we can use a former factory for our activities.
