Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will give a live statement from "in front of the Ecuadorian embassy" at 2 p.m. on Sunday, the Web site announced via Twitter.

The announcement caused a bit of confusion as to whether Assange can actually step out into public without getting arrested. There has yet to be any clarification.

The infamous hacktivist was granted asylum Thursday by Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa and is currently cooped up in the Latin American nation's embassy in London.

The decision inflamed already strained relations between Ecuador and the United Kingdom.

Assange, 41 has been on the lam, fighting the U.K.'s efforts to extradite him to Sweden, where he faces allegations of sexually assaulting two Wikileaks volunteers.

Granting Assange asylum led to angry public exchanges between the two nations, with the U.K. threatening to revoke the embassy's diplomatic status, "storm" it and arrest Assange.

"The UK has a legal obligation to extradite Mr. Assange to Sweden to face questioning over allegations of sexual offences, and we remain determined to fulfil this obligation," a Foreign Office spokesman told Reuters.

Ecuador's conduits pushed back against the threat and charges.

"We are not a colony of Britain," said Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino in response to the threat, adding Assange's fears of political persecution at the hands of the United States were "legitimate."
