Julian Assange
Washington, Dec 4: The founder of the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, Julian Assasnge has told that his native country Australia is working with United States to eliminate him.

While answering the questions by the readers of Guardian, Julain Assange told the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, was trying to attack him and his people. He also added that Australia won't allow him to return to its land.

"I am an Australian citizen and I miss my country a great deal. However, during the last weeks the Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, and the attorney general, Robert McClelland, have made it clear that not only is my return is impossible but that they are actively working to assist the United States government in its attacks on myself and our people," Assange replied to a query about his return to Australia.

Assange also accused that Australian politicians and diplomats are working as assistants to United States.

"This brings into question what does it mean to be an Australian citizen - does that mean anything at all? Or are we all to be treated like David Hicks at the first possible opportunity merely so that Australian politicians and diplomats can be invited to the best US embassy cocktail parties," he added.

Julian Assange is an Australian citizen and a Australian passport holder. He has lived in several countries and has told reporters he is constantly on the move. He has became centre of attention by the release of secret data through WikiLeaks.
