On the night of October 7, President Lenín Moreno held Rafael Correa and Nicolás de Maduro responsible for the looting, vandalism and violence in Ecuador since October 3.
“Is it a coincidence that (Rafael) Correa, (Ricardo) Patiño and (Paola) Pabón traveled to Venezuela a few weeks ago? Maduro, activated along with Correa, his destabilization plan (…) They are the ones behind this coup attempt. ” The morning of Tuesday, the prefect of Pichincha, Paola Pabón, explained in a radio interview that he did travel to Venezuela.
“We were because Correa was conducting a series of interviews. He lives in Belgium for several years and it is obvious that if he is in Latin America, we can meet who leads the movement. ” In that context, the political leader Juan Guaidó said on October 8 that he tries to find “with the whereabouts” of the Ecuadorian ex-president in that country, in case he is still there. The Venezuelan reported that mechanisms were activated to obtain accurate data.
Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru and Paraguay have shown support for the Moreno government, following the most recent social crisis events. In addition, the seven Latin American countries reject “any action” by Nicolás Maduro to “destabilize” Ecuador.
