The message, shared on Twitter, reads: "We are writing to request that you do everything you can to champion action that will ensure Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden in the event Sweden make an extradition request".
Assange has always denied the allegations, and sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy to prevent facing the charges in Sweden, which he feared would lead to eventual extradition to the United States.
Despite this support, for Ecuador, which prides itself on its hospitality and spent nearly $1mn a year protecting Assange, his behaviour was seen been by some as a national insult.
"I don't think politicians should be saying he should or should not be. extradited", he said. On occasions, when there are competing extradition requests, the home secretary decides which country should take priority. De Montchalin's remarks come as Juan Branco, an attorney for Assange, is urging French President Emmanuel Macron to appeal to authorities to block the WikiLeaks founder's extradited to the U.S. Branco suggested Macron should "take this man under our protection", noting that the 47-year-old Australia native has a child in France.
Some Conservative Party members are also backing the move.
Tory former Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt told the BBC: "The minimising of the issues in relation to sexual assault are really quite disturbing".
He hired a team of American and British lawyers, who he hopes will keep him from being extradited to the U.S., where he's wanted on hacking charges.

Jeremy Corbyn has called for the UK Government to oppose Julian Assange's extradition to the USA over allegations that he conspired to hack into a classified Pentagon computer.
Inspectors found "most prisoners share a cell designed for one person" while more than a third "were receiving psychosocial help for substance misuse problems".
Swedish prosecutors dropped a rape investigation into Assange in 2017 because they were unable to formally notify him of the allegations - a necessary step in proceeding with the case - while he remained in the Ecuadorian embassy. He has not had a chance to enter a plea in response to the USA charge, but he has claimed that all of his WikiLeaks actions are those of a legitimate journalist. Regardless, Assange will have to serve any prison sentence for skipping bail in 2012 for the sexual assault and rape allegations, which a judge will determine at a later date. He feared that if he was taken to Sweden, he would be handed to the United States authorities.
Some of the sexual misconduct accusations are no longer viable because their time ran out.
The rape allegation has a limitation period which expires in August 2020, it adds.
Sarah Green, co-director of End Violence Against Women, an alliance of more than 80 organisations, said Assange's portrayal by some as a victim was an affront to rape survivors.
