Ecuador's government is cutting off WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's communications outside the nation's London embassy.
Officials announced Wednesday they were taking the measure in response to Assange's recent activity on social media.
As part of an agreement between Assange and the Ecuadorean government, he is not permitted to send any messages that could interfere with the South American nation's relations with other countries.
Assange has been living in Ecuador's embassy for more than five years.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Ecuador said that the step had been taken because Assange had failed to abide by an agreement not to interfere in the South American country's relations with other states.
"The government of Ecuador warns that Assange's behaviour, through his messages on social networks, put at risk the country's good relations with the United Kingdom, the other states of the European Union, and other nations," the statement said.
Ecuador gave Assange asylum after he sought refuge in the embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden for investigation of sex-related claims. Sweden dropped the case, but Assange remains subject to arrest in Britain for jumping bail.
Assange, who has been holed up in the embassy in Knightsbridge, London, since 2012.
WikiLeaks disclosed tens of thousands of emails during the 2016 US presidential election that the US government believes were provided by Russian intelligence-linked hackers.
Assange denied his source was a "state actor" but declined to elaborate further.
