    (I have not seen this reported in Western media before:  The OAS stands behind Ecuador.)

    EXCERPT from the full article:


    British Prime Minister David Cameron “must be really angry with his foreign minister”, Correa said.

    “Because, besides the rudeness and the discourtesy, the intolerable threat this was, it was a huge diplomatic blunder.”

    The 34-member Organisation of American States declared “solidarity and support” for Ecuador on Friday, rejecting “any attempt that might put at risk the inviolability of the premises of diplomatic missions.”

    Correa added: “Britain supported Augusto Pinochet unconditionally. And they let him go, they didn’t extradite him on humanitarian grounds – whereas they want to extradite Julian Assange for not using a condom, for the love of God.

    “These are grave contradictions.”
