Also, Martín Vizcarra, president of Peru, will visit Quito to discuss commercial and migratory issues, mainly. “We are going to talk with Peru, we will strengthen relations to analyze issues related to human mobility,” Sanchez said.
Regarding the recent decision of the Ecuadorian government to declare a state of emergency to address the Venezuelan migration in Carchi, Pichincha and El Oro, the official highlighted the work of the United Nations (UN), in conducting studies, analysis and records, as well as in monitoring the policies and actions on the emergency.

Although Daniel Regalado, president of the Venezuelan Association in Ecuador, said it is important that the alert be throughout the country. He asked the national authorities to facilitate the delivery of documentation to settle in Ecuador or travel to Peru. In this regard, the Foreign Ministry asked the Embassy of Venezuela and the UN to help with the issuance of documents. “The delivery of documents to citizens is the responsibility of the States, in this case Venezuela.
We need Venezuelan documents, “said the Ecuadorian Vice Minister. So far, the Foreign Ministry has not made a decision to create a humanitarian corridor between the international bridge of Rumichaca, on the border with Colombia, and Huaquillas, the border with Peru. “The issue is under analysis,” Sanchez added.
