- “The British are used to being obeyed, not to negotiate with a third-world country. They tried to deal with us like a subordinate country.”
- “Assange didn’t have any possibility of a fair legal process in the United States.”
- “We engaged a special security company in order to protect the London embassy, to protect Julian Assange…They were captured by the CIA.”
- “I cancelled the agreement to have an American base in our country in 2009. These are things that the American authorities do not forgive.”
