Switzerland to mediate in diplomatic crisis between Mexico, Ecuador

Mexico, Jun 25 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Tuesdy that Switzerland will intervene in the diplomatic dispute with Ecuador to safeguard the assets of each country and prevent the repetition of events such as the assault on the Mexican Embassy in Quito.

“Basically, Mexico’s assets are taken care of, that the Embassy is taken care of so that it does not undergo any damage,” he said briefly when asked about the subject at his regular press conference.

However, he revealed that Switzerland’s specific functions will be under the supervision of the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs to ensure that operational needs between Mexico and Ecuador continue within a framework of minimum cooperation.

Switzerland will mediate in accordance with the agreements signed in Bern this month and will thus seek to maintain a minimum level of relations between both countries amid the current tensions.

Mexico and Ecuador have been immersed in a diplomatic crisis since last April, when the Ecuadorian police broke into the Mexican Embassy in Quito to capture former President Jorge Glas, who had previously requested political asylum from the López Obrador Government.
