Brazil Wants to Be Friends With New Ecuador Leadership

Brazil’s special presidential advisor for international affairs, Marco Aurélio Garcia, affirms that Brazil desires “the best possible relationship” with the new government of Ecuador.

Following the ouster of Lucio Gutiérrez last week, Vice-President Alfredo Palácio assumed the Presidency.


Garcia says that Brazil will not judge the domestic situation in Ecuador but wants to establish good relations with the new government.


“There is a desire on our part and on the part of the Ecuadorian government as well,” he remarked.


According to Garcia, Brazil established important economic agreements with the Ecuadorian government, and these “will surely be maintained by the new government.”


Garcia, who participated in the seminar, “The Growth of Brazilian International Relations,” in Brasí­lia, also defended the political asylum granted by Brazil to the ex-President of Ecuador.


“Asylum is a routine political practice in Latin America. Brazil granted asylum, because it concluded that the circumstances warranted it,” he added.
