He also recalled that the UN has expressed its “condemnation for the flagrant violations of international law (…) when the embassy (Mexican in Quito) was attacked” last Friday.

Today, the Mexican government asked to suspend Ecuador of the UN for the assault on its embassy in Quito in the complaint he presented to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

In the complaint, Mexico demands “the suspension of Ecuador as a member of the United Nations Organization until a public apology is issued, recognizing the violations of the fundamental principles and norms of international law,” said the cMexican Chancellor, Alicia Bárcenaat a conference.

The Mexican demand does not seem easy to fulfill judging by the UN’s own history: since its founding, only one State has been expelled: it was in 1971, when Taiwan was stripped of the seat of the Republic of Chinawhich was instead given to the People’s Republic of China.

Ecuador is not only a full member of the UN but at this very moment he has a seat in the Security Council within the quota of Latin American and Caribbean countries, a position it has held since June 2022.
