Cuba advocates dialogue to overcome Mexico-Ecuador crisis

Havana, Apr 10 (Prensa Latina) Cuba believes in dialogue as a way to overcome the diplomatic crisis caused by the unacceptable assault on the Mexican Embassy in Ecuador, President Miguel Díaz-Canel stated on Wednesday.

On his X account, the head of State noted, “We believe in the force of Law and not in the right to force,” expressed by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez at the ministerial meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

On Tuesday, the head of Cuban diplomacy proposed to CELAC to issue an urgent statement to condemn the violation perpetrated by Ecuador against the Mexican Embassy in Quito and the aggression against its diplomatic staff.

Rodríguez called on the regional bloc to react with a firm and united voice in the face of these unacceptable events, which impact the entire community.

According to the Cuban foreign minister, the statement should urge the Government of Ecuador to comply strictly with its international obligations and act in accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

Rodríguez proposed to Honduras, in his capacity as president pro tempore of CELAC, that the document should call on the parties concerned to use dialogue or any other resource within International Law to resolve their differences.

The statement must also endorse the validity of the postulates of the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace and the commitment by all the States of our region to its strict observance.

The foreign minister reiterated Cuba’s solidarity with and support for Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and all his people in the face of the unacceptable violation and abuse of Mexico’s Embassy in Quito.

“Mexico can and will always count on our willingness and will to accompany it in the actions it undertakes in the face of this serious transgression,” Rodríguez stressed.
