Cuba reiterates in CELAC condemnation of the assault on the Mexican embassy

Havana, April 9 (Prensa Latina) The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez, today expressed his country’s condemnation of the assault on the Mexican embassy in Ecuador, during his intervention at the virtual meeting of foreign ministers of the CELAC.

Rodríguez denounced the event before the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which he described as an attack on Mexican sovereignty, which could set a very serious precedent and endanger international relations and cooperation between States.

The head of Cuban diplomacy stressed in his account on the social network “We defend the force of law”, he said.

He highlighted that Latin America and the Caribbean is and must continue to be a zone of peace, as Celac proclaimed in Havana 10 years ago.

The Foreign Minister reiterated the solidarity and support of his country to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to his counterpart Alicia Bárcena and to the Mexican people.

He asserted that the Mexican nation can count on Cuba’s willingness and will accompany them in the actions they undertake in the face of this serious transgression of International Law.

After the events, in which Ecuadorian forces entered the Mexican diplomatic headquarters to remove former vice president Jorge Glas, who was there as a political asylum, Mexico broke diplomatic ties with Ecuador.

Ecuador could be sanctioned by the International Court of Justice after the invasion of the Mexican embassy, a fact that continues to generate rejection today from several countries and organizations.
