Julian Assange obtained global protection in August 2012 from the Ecuadorian Government at the time.
The British Foreign Office turned down a request to grant diplomatic status to Julian Assange, who has lived at the embassy since 2012.
A spokesperson for the Foreign Office denied that the government was in talks with Ecuador over Assange receiving diplomatic status, emphasisng that the government wants him to face justice - even if the crime in question is far less severe than it was 12 months ago.
Julian Assange was likely granted an Ecuadorian ID card that might be paving the way for a passport, fueling theories that he might be leaving the London embassy soon.
Ecuador's Foreign Ministry in a statement said it was seeking to resolve Assange's situation, without making reference to the citizenship issue. Swedendropped the case, but Assange has remained in the embassy because he is still subject to arrest in Britain for jumping bail. However, Metropolitan Police say he still faces a charge related to failing to surrender to a court and might still be arrested on those charges, BBC reported.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was granted a passport for Ecuador after taking asylum in the country's London embassy since 2012.
The UK's rejection of a diplomatic pass comes after Assange tweeted a cryptic picture of him dressed in the colours of Ecuador. While Swedish prosecutors dropped extradition requests related to sex crime allegations in May 2017, Assange fears that if British police detain him, USA prosecutors will immediately issue an extradition request over Wikileaks' decision to publish troves of secret United States military documents.
Despite Trump's campaign rhetoric about his "love" for WikiLeaks after it released internal emails of the Democratic National Committee exposing its corrupt bid to rig the presidential nomination process to ensure the victory of Hillary Clinton, administration officials have since made clear that Assange remains Washington's "public enemy number one".
Ecuador's newly elected president Lenin Moreno has warned Assange that he must respect asylum conditions and refrain from getting involved in the affairs of other countries. However, he still finds himself facing many legal battles should he walk out of the embassy. He was granted asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy.
He also said that the risk of Assange being prosecuted in the US has increased "in recent months under the Trump administration's war on WikiLeaks".
Assange also offended potential supporters in the Democratic Party by allowing WikiLeaks to become the conduit for emails hacked by Russian Federation from the Democratic National Committee that were meant to harm the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
