STORYLINE
Asked about the latest developments with regard to the disputed Essequibo region along the Venezuela-Guyana border, Ecuador’s President Daniel Noboa today said, “we are going to respect the sovereignty of each of the countries,” and called for the establishment of “real protection for our borders and that there is no type of invasion or appropriation of something that does not belong to another nation.”

Venezuela has long-claimed the 61,000-square-mile region wich was adjudicated to Guyana through an international arbitration in 1899

Asked about a draft Security Council resolution tabled by the United Arab Emirates calling for a humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza, Noboa said, “Ecuador will always be in favour of peace, in favour of the ceasefire and of ending violence not only in Gaza, but in any area or territory in the world that is happening, including in Ecuadorian territory. Something important is also that we are also against terrorist actions against sovereign peoples and against friendly peoples.”

Ecuador holds the presidency of the Council for the month of December.
