Diplomatic Tensions Escalate: Mexican President Cuts Ties with Ecuador Following Embassy Raid

Published

on

The Mexican president swiftly ends diplomatic relations with Ecuador after Ecuadorian police forcefully entered the Mexican Embassy in Quito to arrest a former vice president who had sought asylum there.

The Ecuadorian authorities raided the Mexican diplomatic premises in Quito to apprehend the former vice president who had been residing there. The ex-vice president was then taken to a detention facility amidst a convoy of military and police vehicles.

Venezuela denounced Ecuador's actions, standing by Mexico and condemning Ecuador for their breach of diplomatic protocol in a statement released on Saturday.

The former vice president, who had sought asylum in the Mexican Embassy, has been convicted of bribery and corruption charges, with ongoing investigations into further allegations against him in Ecuador.

The unprecedented breach of the Mexican Embassy led Mexico to severe diplomatic ties with Ecuador, denouncing the detention as an authoritarian act and a violation of international law.

Amid the diplomatic standoff, Mexico’s secretary of foreign relations highlighted the injuries sustained by diplomats during the embassy raid, citing violations of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Mexico intends to take the matter to the International Court of Justice to address Ecuador’s responsibility for breaches of international law concerning the inviolability of diplomatic premises.

Despite Ecuador’s presidency justifying the arrest as necessary to prevent criminals from evading justice, Mexico maintains that the actions violate sovereignty and international norms.

Relations between the two countries further deteriorated following controversial comments made by Mexico’s president regarding Ecuador’s recent election, leading to the expulsion of the Mexican ambassador from Ecuador.
