WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange indicated Monday he would leave Ecuador's embassy in London "soon" but his organization played down the comment, saying he would not depart until there was an agreement with Britain's government.Speaking after the press conference, Hrafnsson indicated that Assange would remain at the embassy until an agreement on his future was brokered.Assange sought asylum at the embassy in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces allegations of rape and sexual molestation which he strongly denies.Assange was accompanied at the press conference by Ecuador's Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino, who did not mention a plan for Assange to leave the embassy but called for the governments involved in his case to take action.
