Ecuador's government has acknowledged that it has "temporarily restricted" WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's Internet access at its embassy in London after the whistle-blowing site published documents from Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement Tuesday that although it stands by its decision in 2012 to grant Assange asylum, it doesn't interfere in foreign elections. Leftist President Rafael Correa's government said it was acting on its own and not ceding to foreign pressures.

The ministry didn't specify the extent of the restrictions on Assange's access to the Internet, saying only that the restrictions on his communications wouldn't affect WikiLeaks' ability to carry out its journalistic activities.
