The Organisation of American States (OAS) has called a meeting of foreign ministers for August 24 to discuss the stand-off sparked when Ecuador granted asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Twenty-three countries voted on Friday for the resolution proposed by Ecuador to convene the meeting at its Washington headquarters to discuss Quito's stand-off with Britain over Assange. The US, Canada and Trinidad and Tobago voted no.
The vote was taken at emergency talks to discuss the Assange case.

The Americas as a whole and Argentina in particular are fed-up with the overbaring arrogance of the British Government. Britian shows scant regard for Human Rights and has a corrupt sophisicated legal system which can be used to target anyone it considersd a threat,
Julian Asange although granted asylum by Ecuador is still holed up in the Embassy because the British say "we do not accept Diplomatic Policitcal asylum"
Julian Assange may not be alone in the embassy. British citizen and former British spy Andrea Davison who's friend ' spy in the bag' Gareth Williams was murdered in 2010 is also in seeking asylum.
More links emerge between Julian Assange and Andrea Davison as it is revealed Andrea has been feeding Julian’s network with intelligence for over 4 years. She was deeply committed to helping expose corruption and spent most of her life in this pursuit. She was a major witness in Lord Justice Scotts Famus Inquory into Arms to Iraq she is an expert on Biological weapons like Dr Kelly. Andrea and Julian hated the Iraq wars and the huypocracy of the Brtiish and US Governments.
Will Ecuador up the stakes and now grant asylum to a British National. The American Nations will no doubt be discussing this on August the 24th.
