The National Assembly, at its yesterday meeting, passed a resolution against the illegal and indiscriminate use of espionage for insider information.
The document was prepared by the International Affairs Committee and got 92 votes in favor, 17 against and 7 abstentions.
According to the text, the espionage action violates intellectual property and this could lead to a condition of improper advantage regarding international negotiations of any kind.
This resolution rejects the alleged espionage and accused the U.S. government of “complicity with transnational corporations and other countries against nations, peoples and individuals, undermining of the state sovereignty and the right to privacy and enshrined privacy in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
Finally, the approved document rejects any kind of pressure that another country could carry out against Ecuador and it threatens the principle of non-interference by a State in the internal affairs of another country.
The Assembly also requested support under a multilateral initiative of UNASUR to categorically reject any act that undermines legal certainty and sovereignty of Latin American states.
