Moreno told the Ecuadorean Radio Broadcasters Association that Assange is not entitled to "hack private accounts or phones" and cannot interfere with other countries' policies, especially those with friendly relations with Ecuador.
Assange took refuge in Ecuador's London Embassy in 2012 to avoid being extradited to Sweden, where the authorities wanted to question him as part of a sexual assault.
This probe was later dropped, but Assange fears he could be extradited to faces in the US, where public prosecutors are investigating WikiLeaks.
He says Ecuador seeks to end his asylum and puts pressure on him by isolating him from visitors and spying on him. Ecuador has said that the treatment of Assange was in accordance with international law, but that his situation "cannot be prolonged indefinitely."
