Ecuador's Prez talking to UK about Assange's six-year London Embassy stay – reports

Re: Makes no sense

It would be an insult to Sweden to ask it for such assurances, because if Assange is extradited under a European Arrest Warrant then the receiving country cannot extradite him without approval by the sending country. Or if you prefer a different perspective, Sweden already gave such assurances way back in 2004 when it implemented the framework directive which established the EAW. See Article 28, paragraph 4.
