Assange hopes for 'dialogue' with Britain over future

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange voiced hope for "dialogue" with British and US authorities over his future on Friday after Swedish prosecutors dropped a long-running rape investigation against him.

"My legal staff have contacted the UK authorities and we hope to engage in a dialogue about what will be the best way forward," he said, adding that he was equally "happy to engage" in dialogue with the United States.
