Diplomatic crisis

Shortly after the invasion that resulted in the detention of former Ecuadorian vice-president Jorge Glas, a refugee in the embassy accused of corruption, Mexico announced the severing of diplomatic relations with Ecuador. “This is a flagrant violation of international law and Mexico’s sovereignty”said Obrador, who intends to take the case to the International Court of Justice.

The invasion occurred hours after Mexico granted political asylum to Jorge Glas. A chancellor Mexican Alicia Barcena stated that granting asylum is a constitutional right and that the action was in compliance with international conventions. “In granting asylum to Jorge Glas, I trust that the government of Ecuador will provide safe conduct as quickly as possible,” finished the chancellor. Daniel Noboa's government, however, refused to hand over the document authorizing Glas's travel to Mexico and invaded Mexico's diplomatic headquarters.
