Embattled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange promised Thursday to release more than a million files in 2013 which would affect "every country in the world."
"Despite an unprecedented criminal investigation and campaign to destroy WikiLeaks, 2012 has been a huge year," said Assange in a rare video message.
"Next year will be equally busy. WikiLeaks has well over a million documents to release."
Assange, the Australian native founder of WikiLeaks, gave his speech from the balcony of Ecuador's London embassy, where he has been given asylum.
