China condemns assassination of Ecuador’s presidential candidate

Fernando-Villavicencio-1
Beijing, Aug 10 (Prensa Latina) China condemned Thursday the assassination of Ecuador's presidential candidate Fernando Villavicencio.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hopes that the country’s authorities and the stakeholders will work to maintain stability so that the upcoming general elections will be safe, stable, and smooth.

The Foreign Ministry also extended condolences for Wednesday’s events during a political rally in northern Quito.

The crime occurred despite the candidate traveling with police protection due to threats received weeks earlier, as he denounced.

Ecuador is suffering from unprecedented insecurity and political violence that have claimed the lives of dozens of public officials and candidates for public office.
