President Lenin Moreno received yesterday the credentials of 11 ambassadors, among them, René de Solá, representative of the government of Juan Guaidó.
René de Solá, representative in Ecuador of the Venezuelan government of Juan Guaidó, delivered this Tuesday, March 26, the credentials to the President of the Republic, Lenin Moreno.
The protocolary act was carried out along with 10 other ambassadors, in the Carondelet Palace. The credentials were also delivered by the ambassadors of Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Colombia, Peru, Canada, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Lebanon. “Ecuador reinforces the bonds of friendship,” the Head of State reiterated, recalling that the new representatives will become bridges to promote development.
In that sense, De Solá thanked the country for supporting Guaidó and said that they will strengthen relations between the countries, especially in favor of the 250,000 Venezuelans residing in Ecuador.
With this step the country deepens the recognition of the administration of Guaidó, which started on February 7, when De Solá received the Ecuadorian approval to exercise its functions as representative of the Caribbean country.
From that date, the ambassador performed his duties without having a place of work. “We do not need an office to be able to dispatch,” the diplomat said a week ago. In this regard, Foreign Minister José Valencia affirmed that De Solá is the only person who will determine the place where the Venezuelan Embassy will operate in Quito.
“What we want is to have a fluid relationship with the embassy, because it provides important attention to Venezuelans,” he said.

In the framework of the protocol ceremony, Foreign Minister José Valencia indicated that the National Government is surprised by the latest actions of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his lawyers.
This after last week reference was made to an alleged investigation against the President in the Twitter account of the Australian website. Valencia recalled that Assange is bound by justice to comply with a protocol of coexistence in the Ecuadorian embassy in London (England), where he has been isolated since 2012. “The country will act on the basis of international law with this and other declarations or behaviors of the Mr. Julian Assange, “said the Chancellor.
